This book is an expanded version of HISTORICAL AND DESCRIPTIVE SKETCHES OF THE MARITIME COLONIES OF BRITISH AMERICA (London, 1828), adding statistics and other practical information.

He was interested in the technology of transatlantic steam navigation, the intercolonial railroad and coal mining in Nova Scotia. The book is organized by topics - forest, animals, climate (especially thunder). He recounts incidents involving Acadians, Prince Edward Islanders, bickering St. John's royalists, fog-endangered trips on the Bay of Fundy; and comments on Quebec, Rimouski, Trois-Pistoles" - Waterston p. 52, Sabin 43280.
