Prince Edward Island

Prince Edward Island (PEI) is a Canadian province situated in the Maritimes. It is the nation's smallest province in both size and population, but it has Canada's highest population density. With its fertile, distinctive red soil and its agreeable climate, the island has become known as the Garden of the Gulf. Tourism and fishing contribute to the island's economy, and there may be natural gas deposits beneath its eastern end. What Canadian author and PEI native set most of her novels there? More...

Lucy Maud Montgomery is one of the most regionally based and popular Canadian writers. All but one of her twenty novels were set in her native Prince Edward Island, and her red-headed heroine, "Anne of Green Gables," is intrinsically linked with Prince Edward Island's identity and, in a broad sense, with Canadian culture.

L.M. Montgomery, author of Anne of Green Gables

L.M. Montgomery (Lucy Maud), writer of the universally beloved "Anne of Green Gables", was born on the north shore of Prince Edward Island and raised in Cavendish where she lived until she married at age 36.

Anne of Green Gables has been translated into 15 different languages and put on film.

The story was inspired by the land, the sea and the people around her. It in turn has imparted an image of the Island that draws 350,000 visitors annually from around the world to Green Gables House.

The Anne of Green Gables Licensing Authority protects the integrity of the images of Anne, preserves and enhances the legacy of L.M. Montgomery and her literary works, and controls the use of Anne of Green Gables and related trademarks and official marks.

I love anywhere coastal. However, PEI is a heavenly, beautiful place.

Beautiful island. My friend recently flew in there. Runway's easy to find : Longest road on the island without stop signs.

Montgomery lived about 10 minutes down the road from me for ten years. ( we never met, of course...) Friends of mine used to live in her former house.
