1 Telfer, A.H. Edited by Lorene DiCorpo. WORTH TRAVELLING MILES TO SEE: DIARY OF A SURVEY TRIP TO LAKE TEMISKAMING, 1886.
Toronto Natural Heritage 2004 189621987X / 9781896219875 First Edition Soft Cover Very Good 
167 pp, 9" H. B&w photographs, maps, reproductions. "The story of (Alexander) Niven and the other surveyors who mapped the Townships of the Little Clay Belt in the District of Temiskaming in the 1880s". "A.H. Telfer's personal diaries, which tell of the day-to-day hardships and accomplishments of these surveyors, are a fascinating account of the country before the great land rush of the 1890s and the Cobalt mining boom of 1903, which changed the landscape dramatically. (B)ridges the gap between the fur trading and logging eras, and the settlement of Temiskaming. Of equal interest is the mention in the diary of pioneers in the area, such as C.C. Farr, the founder of the town of Haileybury; Edouard Piche, one of the earliest settlers on Lake Temiskaming; and the Heard brothers from Haliburton, who were among the first homesteaders." Inside - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - slight twist to spine, three tiny corner creases, small bump at bottom edge of rear cover - migrates into pages with a light scuff on bottom of text block.
