Overview: A social history of any community in any time period must seek to study every cultural signpost and use them to inform the reader; 14th Colony is such a social history. It is the second title in a trilogy of planned books by social historian Alex Boutilier.

A common thread running through the chapters involve the circumstances in which each governor found himself, and what was done to remedy a specific situation; and how each brought Nova Scotia a step closer to Confederation with a few who were extraordinary, propelling society forward & ultimately devolved into the Canadian Confederation. Includes the fascinating debates of Howe and Tupper, although on opposite sides in the debate, were selected by MacDonald for his first cabinet.
