Humans love lists. As humourist writer H. Allen Smith once wrote, "The human animal differs from the lesser primates in his passion for lists." That infatuation with lists continues here. From Nova Scotia's great collector comes a masterful collection of lists that will start family arguments, provoke a wry smile, or just generally entertain on a cold winter night or in the dog days of summer.
