144 pp, oblong (8 1/4" H x 10 1/4" D). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, reproductions, maps. "This is the story of the settlement and development of one of Ontario's unique geographic and economic regions, Lake Huron's stormy eastern shore, from Grand Bend in the south to Southampton in the north. Populated by native peoples for thousands of years, and surveyed for the British Admiralty in 1822 by the famous Henry Wolsey Bayfield, this strikingly scenic region became the home to a diverse range of hard-working settlers and flamboyant entrepreneurs. (The author) tells the fascinating tale of the building of eastern Lake Huron's determined port communities and of their residents' struggle to survive all manner of pioneer hardships and lake-borne disasters. (This) is a celebration of the region's hard times, heyday and heroes. It is also a vitally important collection of wonderful historic photographs, many of them quite rare." Very small bump at top of spine. Dust jacket has minor rubbing, a few small areas of light edge wrinkling - mainly at top of spine.
