Summary
"Sherman Bleakney employs his knowledge as a marine biologist to examine the unusual physical and biological features of the environment at Grand Pre, features that encouraged dyke construction as a viable alternative to clearing forested upland terrain." "Among many others, topics discussed by Bleakney include Bay of Fundy geology and derivation of marsh soils, sod production, Acadian technology, and dykeland fishing and hunting practices."--Jacket
