Another Win for Cumberland County

Congratulations to Harry Thurston, who lives in Tidnish Bridge.

His book, Atlantic Coast: A Natural History (Greystone Books), took home the Dartmouth Prize for Non-Fiction In Memory of Robbie Robertson at last week's Atlantic Book Awards.

Harry has lived in Nova Scotia his whole life and while he started out with a career as a fisheries technician (after studying biology at Acadia University), he is well-known as an award-winning poet and a journalist.
