190 pp, small 4to (10" H). B&w photographs, map. "The Almaguin Highlands region, located approximately eighty kilometres north of the halfway point to the North Pole and rising high above sea level, was once coveted for its majestic white pine, game and silver birch. More than a century later; much of its unspoiled wilderness areas remain intact, ready for new exploration. Today, its enviable position of being just north of Muskoka and within easy driving distance of southern Ontario has made the Highlands the logical choice for the eco-tourist seeking new adventures. (This book) paints a lively picture of what the area must have been like in the early days. Here are the lumberjacks who ventured into the last of the great timber stands to cut down what was left of the white pine, and the intrepid settlers who trekked across the terrain not that far behind them - sometimes with little more than blazed trails as their guide. And here are the boat builders whose steamers and tugs traversed the multiple waterways, so important to the district, and the men and women of all walks of life who contributed to the spirit of the times." Inside - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright.
