John Macfie - This is the story of an Ontario Colonization Road, from 1870 until present. The path pioneers crossed from Georgian Bay to the fledgling village of Parry Sound, was the start of the Great North Road, one of a score or more colonization routes that, beginning in the 1850s, the Ontario government pushed into the rock-ribbed southern flank of the Precambrian Shield to admit agricultural settlers. This fascinating book is filled with stories and photographs that reveal a little-know chapter of Ontario's history. (22x28cm)
