The North Channel and St. Mary's River by Andrea Gutsche, Floren Russell and Barbara Chisholm
For centuries, Lake Huron's North Channel and St. Mary's River have provided an essential passageway, first for native peoples and then for successive waves of Europeans. The footprints of Indians, explorers, missionaries and fur traders, soldiers and settlers, entrepreneurs and scoundrels are ever visible.
Brimming with stories, folklore and eccentric frontier characters, the book pulls you along on an engaging journey of discovery, stretching from the ancient, quartzite hills of La Cloche, west along Manitoulin Island and the North Channel, to the St. Mary's River and the two Saults. Includes over 125 sites, maps and archival photographs.
