Sculptures from Jagged Ore: Essays about Cape Breton Women
Carol Corbin, Eileen Smith-Piovesan
Cape Breton University Press, 2001 - Cape Breton Island (N.S.) - 232 pages
More than tributes to Cape Breton women, these sketches offer intimate descriptions of life on this Nova Scotia Island. From women working in an Acadian fishing village, to wives and daughters in the coal mining culture, to the conversations of local quilters, the Island inspires women as they craft their art, stories, work and communities. This collection celebrates the contributions and hard work of women on this Island - an Island that continues to shape, inspire and test its people.
