title The Fairest Land
creator Beck, Boyde
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description Prince Edward Island, with its gentle blend of green and red, seems almost out of place in a Gulf dominated by wild cliffs and granite coastlines. Jacques Cartier was the first European to record his impressions of its tame, almost Old World beauty. Over the three and a half centuries that followed, many more travellers, adventurers, promoters, and settlers added their thoughts to a growing body of descriptive literature. From their observations, we can get a glimpse, if not of reality, at least of what Prince Edward Island was perceived to be and could become.
