Book Description

Oct. 10 2006
With more than 100 beautiful colour photographs from dozens of communities, this book will be savoured by all those who treasure this precious landscape

The Niagara Escarpment stretches more than 700 kilometres from Niagara Falls, through Hamilton, to Tobermory on the tip of the Bruce Peninsula, before dipping under Georgian Bay. Designated a United Nations biosphere reserve in 1990, the meandering ridge is home to over 300 bird species and other wildlife, many of Ontario's rare plant species, and the oldest old-growth forest east of the Rocky Mountains. The Bruce Trail, the pre-eminent walking trail in southern Ontario, created by naturalists working with private landowners, now winds along its length.
The photographs of Sandy Bell, Vic MacBournie and John MacRae, taken from more than seventy points south to north, show the Escarpment in all its variety, moods and seasons. Providing background on the story of the protection of this precious landform -- and the continuing challenge of demands for resource extraction and urban expansion -- is an introductory essay by Joan Little, a resident and friend of the Escarpment who has worked with citizens and government to preserve its unique features.

About the Author

SANDY BELL's photography has been featured in many magazines, brochures, advertisements and books such as Halton, Rising, Wild and Beckoning, and Hamilton, A New City for the Millennium. Sandy, his wife, Lou, and their three children reside in Burlington where they have lived in close proximity to the Niagara Escarpment for almost thirty years. Canadian Author

JOHN MACRAE has collaborated in the publication of a pictorial book on Dundas and provided photography for a book on a local church. His photography has taken him to many countries and every province in Canada including the Northwest Territories. John, his wife Joyce, and their sons spend summers at their cottage on the Bruce Peninsula where they enjoy exploring the northern reaches of the Niagara Escarpment with their grandchildren.Canadian Author

VIC MACBOURNIE is an editor at The Hamilton Spectator but his passion for photography remains strong. His writing and photography have appeared in daily and weekly newspapers, magazines and books throughout southern Ontario. Living on the edge of the escarpment in the Dundas Valley with his wife Julie and daughter enables him to photograph nature and wildlife right outside his door.Canadian Author

2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre picture reproduction Jan. 27 2007
I found a copy of this book in a Toronto bookstore and decided not to buy it after seeing (a) many of the pictures were underwhelming and (b) more often than not, the reproduction was decidedly fuzzy. Considering the quality of photo books anyone can create online these days, that's simply unacceptable. Too bad; the Niagara Escarpment is quietly wonderful region and deserves more photographic treatments. Just not one like this.
