Excellent overview of province's waterfalls,
Ce commentaire est de: Waterfalls of Ontario (Paperback)
Few people in Ontario, much less the rest of Canada, realize there are substantial waterfalls outside of the west, north and, perhaps, Quebec. This book goes a long way toward rectifying that.
Author Mark Harris divides the province into 5 districts -- Algoma, cottage country, Golden Horseshoe (around the western end of Lake Ontario), Lake Huron and Ottawa Valley -- and uses George Fischer's mostly excellent colour photographs to show us what this province has to offer.
Together, they cover at least 100 waterfalls, including more than a dozen in the Hamilton/Ancaster area (who knew an area best known for steel mills has such natural wonders?)
Each waterfall has a two-page spread including detailed driving instructions, fact boxes including rating, size and nearest settlement, plus a short essay on the waterfall and its history.
Is the book useful? You bet. It quickly became my prime resource when I want to photograph waterfalls. (Another resource:Waterfalls The Niagara Escarpment, by Jerry Lawton and Mikal Lawton. The pictures aren't as good, but it's still quite useful).
