There are tens of thousands of Nova Scotians who shared the unforgettable Sunday night when Hurricane Juan landed on September 28, 2003. In this book men and women all along the storm's path recall how they weathered the storm and coped in the aftermath.
Veteran journalist Donald McLeod sought out people from all walks of life to tell in their own words what it was like in the worst hurricane to hit Nova Scotia in decades.
For anyone who wants to relive that September night, this book serves as a record and a reminder of how when the weather is at its worst, Nova Scotians are often at their best.
