“This is the ultimate day trip guide and Jon Tattrie — a Nova Scotia born-and-bred journalist, author and off-the-tourist-trail explorer — is your ultimate guide.
— Stephen Kimber, Professor of Journalism, University of King’s College and author of What Lies Across the Water: The Real Story of the Cuban Five

— John DeMont, author of A Good Day’s Work: In Pursuit of a Disappearing Canada and columnist The (Halifax) Chronicle Herald
