A Collection
of Stories
and much more.

by Asa Hurst

Jeanette T. Furlong

Asa James Hurst lived all his life at Port Hilford, Guysborough County, Nova Scotia. Memories from the Past is a collection of his stories from bygone days of Port Hilford and neighbouring communities.

Many people are familiar with Asa’s stories that appeared in the Guysborough Journal from 1999 to his death in 2002. These stories include events which occurred to his family long before he was born and of life at Port Hilford and the surrounding area. Most are very historical. Asa also tells of how it was growing up in the community he was so much a part of. Added to the book are stories Asa did not have a chance to publish before he died and a little about Asa’s family.
