Seller ID   22376

137 pp, small 4to (10" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs, maps. "This book provides an informal history and tour of the Niagara Escarpment, the backbone of Ontario and one of Canada's natural wonders. Stretching from Tobermory at the tip of the Bruce Peninsula to Niagara Falls, the escarpment exhibits a wide diversity of landscape, people, and industry, in the present and in the past....Over 80 photographs....capture the various facets of the region. The rugged cliffs o f t h e B ruce Peninsula contrast with the pastoral lands beneath Mount Nemo; the neatly trimmed harbour at Tobermory counterpoints the Dundas swamp of Coote's Paradise. We see the interplay of industry and agriculture, from Owen Sound's grain el ev a to rs t h ro ugh Hamilton's blast furnaces to Jordan's vineyards, and recreation and culture, from tourist landmarks through Hockley Hills skiing to the musuems of history and art. The text provides entertaining glimpses of some of the pe o ple an d som e o f t he ev ents in the history of settlement and growth, proceeding from town to town, north to south. This readable book is the first to deal with the landscape and history of the entire Niagara Escarpment. It is a useful guid e to o ne o f the most int ere stin g and historic areas of Canada." Gift inscription on free front endpaper, slight fading to edges of colored endpapers, minor edge wear. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top edge, one very s ma ll cl osed te ar, light to m oder atre rubbing and soiling on rear panel, minor browning at edges. Very Good/Very Good-
