"For those of you with Scottish or British roots who have researched back to the 1500 to 1600s, you will find the book an excellent genealogical source. You'll learn of early names given to present-day towns and villages scattered along the south and southwestern shores of Nova Scotia....this information would be invaluable to those beginning to search records in London, England or Edinburgh, Scotland. A great read and the journey you'll embark on when you crack back the cover of this 169 paged paperback is one you won't forgotten. [sic" (Arleen Lively Family History News)
"Anyone interested in the particular events that imbued Nova Scotia's name, flag, coat of arms, and so forth with a Scottish character will also enjoy Mark Finnan's rendering of the tale." (Olaf Janzen Canadian Book Review Annual)
"Mark Finnan in his book, The First Nova Scotian, tells the story of Charlesport and the almost forgotten origins of Nova Scotia. The First Nova Scotian is not merely a biography, however; it also give some insight into the fascinating political events that influenced Nova Scotia's turbulent, early history... for anyone interested in this province's past, and especially history teachers, The First Nova Scotian is a must." (Alison Walton New Glasgow Evening News)
