Review

[Review for previous edition:] [Brown] has the gift of finding lots of things interesting and of them being able to write beautifully about those things. (Linda Turk Chronicle-Journal (Thunder Bay) 2007-10-07)

[Review for previous edition:] With 100 places to see, along with facts, figures, and photos, this would definitely offer a great gift for the traveller who wants to see impressive sights close to home. (Joan Sutter Shelf Life)

[Review for previous edition:] [For] travellers who want to stay close to home but still enjoy an adventure. (Canwest wire story The Ottawa Citizen 2007-12-15)

[Review for previous edition:] [Brown] collects the very best trips from the most unexpected and surprising sights in the province. (Andrew Armitage The Sun Times (Owen Sound, ON) 2007-11-02)

[Review for previous edition:] Few people know more about Ontario's oddities than Toronto-based author Ron Brown...[and] they're almost all here in this new revised edition. (Diane Slawych The Toronto Sun 2007-12-19)

[Review for previous edition:] We can hope that [Brown's] efforts to celebrate Ontario's past and present wonders will attract a new generation of readers and travellers. (Linda Turk Thunder Bay Chronicle Journal 2007-10-07)

The table of contents alone will make you curious to see such places as Ontario's Taj Mahal. (Jon Fear Guelph Mercury 2012-12-15)

[Review for previous edition:] Brown's books are always interesting and bring to mind adventures. (Lois Cooper Muskoka Today 2007-12-13)

[Review for previous edition:] Most locations are easy to reach from Ontario's major population centres, and a few are for more adventurous explorers. (Northern Life 2007-11-16)

The sights stand out for their splendor or quirkiness. Some are natural wonders, others are man-made. They might be tricky to find, or perched so close that you'll wonder how you missed them.... If your holidays are over and the budget is maxed out, the dog days of summer may be a perfect time to go exploring unusual spots close by. (Andrea Gordon Toronto Star 2012-08-10)

Thoroughly researched and written in an inviting style. (Midland Mirror 2012-12-13)
