Scenic Manitoulin Through the Seasons
With 66 full-page, full-colour photos, this book covers the largest island in a freshwater lake in the world in its many fascinating facets. The fossil-rich limestone base, the alvar habitat with its flora and birds, the histories of the settlers and the Anishnaabeg who were here at least 10,000 years ago, the water and the land, all this and more comes to life in the commentary that accompanies each photo.
