How does a massive rock disappear?
The Boundary Rock was once a southwestern Nova Scotia landmark. Hunters and fishermen had their picture taken by (and on) it. It even appeared on a postcard. But sometime over the last century, its precise location seems to have dropped out of our collective memory.
In my latest radio documentary, The Search for Boundary Rock, I join Paul Maybee and a group of four others, as we head into the remote Tobeatic Wilderness area for a week. Our goal: to find the rock and drag it back into history. This is Paul’s third attempt. But this time, he’s far better prepared than he’s ever been. With the help of experienced trekkers — including Bob Johnston of New Minas, who has spent 10 years researching the Boundary Rock — Paul is convinced we can find it.
