A History of Mount Stewart: Illustrated & expanded Edition—Franklin L. PigotThe Hillsborough River Association has announced that the second print run of A History of Mount Stewart: Illustrated & expanded Edition has arrived. The Association launched its first print run of 500 copies on November 19. By January only a handful of copies were left. With the permission of the Pigot family to reprint a second run, the Association commissioned the printing of 300 more copies.

In his epic 1975 A History of Mount Stewart, Frank Pigot told the story of this once vibrant community’s growth and change. He wrote of historical figures such as the enigmatic “Hellfire Jack” Stewart after whom the community is named and Captain John MacDonald of Glenaladale, of tall ships, water power, farming, fishing, white whale, bear, and rural generosity when times were touch.

The republication of A History of Mount Stewart: Illustrated & expanded Edition was in celebration of  the 20th anniversary of the designation of the Hillsborough as the Island’s first Canadian Heritage River and Canada’s 150th anniversary. Frank Pigot endorsed the Association enriching his words from his 1975 A History of Mount Stewart with photographs, maps, illustrations and highlights of Mount Stewart since 1975 in the form of a timeline, community updates, and new initiatives. All of this was indexed to allow readers and researchers to quickly find people’s names and subject matter. It contains over 200 pictures, maps and illustrations.

Thanks to the authors, profits from its sales will be invested in the Association’s heritage and river conservation programs.  This book is being sold directly through the Association as well as from McAskill Woodworking Ltd., Back Alley Music, Beaconsfield, and The Bookmark in Charlottetown and the Mount Stewart Irving and In-the-Mix Bakery in Mount Stewart.
