First Sentence
Casa Loma, with its towers and turrets, gargoyles and heraldic figures, elegant grey stone walls and red tile roof, is one of the most striking, if not the most eccentric. Read the first page

A Typical Gift Shop Purchase July 4 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Having grown up in a Toronto suburb, I remember visiting Casa Loma as a child. Although my memories of this visit have faded over the years, I'm still intrigued by this eclectic structure. Now that 20 or so years have gone by, I thought it'd be wonderful to re-visit Casa Loma via this book. Although numerous color photos of the castle's exterior and interior are contained therein, the book is weak on the actual construction history of this fairy-tale home. However, there is ample biographical information on Sir Henry, the castle's original owner, and his story is a tragic rags-to-riches-to-rags tale. The bottom line: were you to visit the gift shop after a walking tour of Casa Loma, this is the book you'd buy.

The book embellishes my recent visit to the "Castle In The Air"Well done. Even though it's a used book, looks like new.
