The Lake Erie Shore - Dundurn

The Lake Erie Shore

Ontario's Forgotten South Coast

Published April 2009

Description

The Lake Erie shoreline has born witness to some of Ontario’s earliest history, yet remains largely unspoiled. Much of the area’s natural features - the wetlands, the Carolinian forests - and its built heritage - fishing ports and military ramparts - provide much of interest for vistors to the region.

Ron Brown has traversed this most southern coast line in Ontario, fleshing out forgotten stories of the past, from accounts of the world’s largest freshwater fishing fleet, War of 1812 skirmishes, links with the Underground Railroad, forgotten outposts and canals, the introduction of wineries, and the legacy of the many appealing towns and villages that hug the shoreline.
