Ghost Towns of Muskoka explores the tragic history of a collection of communities from across Muskoka whose stars have long since faded. Today, these ghost towns are merely a shadow – or spectre – of what they once were. Some have disappeared entirely, having been swallowed by regenerating forests, while others have been reduced to foundations, forlorn buildings, and silent ruins. A few support a handful of inhabitants, but even these towns are wrapped in a ghostly shroud. But this book isnt only about communities that have died. Rather it is about communities that lived, vibrantly at that, if only for a brief time. Its about the people whose dreams for a better life these villages represented; the people who lived, loved, laboured, and ultimately died in these small wilderness settlements. And its about an era in history, those early heady days of Muskoka settlement when the forests were flooded with loggers and land-hungry settlers.

The history of Ontario's premier cottage destination, Muskoka, was not commonplace or uneventful. Beginning in the 1860's, emigrants from the British Isles and Europe were lured to this desolate region with the promise of free land grants for farming. What they found were mature forests, swamp, and never ending rock. Their heroic attempts to make a living farming on the Precambrian Shield did not come without considerable discomfort. Pioneer Muskoka documents the struggles faced by these early homesteaders and their response to hardship, isolation, disease and poverty. This is the tale of a community banding together to overcome fear with courage and determination. Readers will be astounded by the lengths these settlers went in their quest to make a home for themselves and future generations in Muskoka. The eventual shift from farming to more profitable industries such as lumber and tourism brought a shift in attitude towards this now highly sought after locale. The first families, through their enormous efforts, were able to create this positive and enduring change....

Steamboats on the Lakes

Steamboats on the Lakes

Filled with rich illustrations, discover how steamships shaped the people and places of 19th century Ontario In the nineteenth century, steamships ruled the Great Lakes and rivers of Upper Canada (now Ontario). Powered by ever-evolving engines that helped them defy the forces of wind and waves governing the progress of a sailing ship, steamships sped up not only the transportation of passengers and goods throughout the province but its very settlement and growth. In Steamboats on the Lakes, marine historian Maurice D. Smith brings together technological and social history. From the story of the building of the first Ontario steamship in 1816, the Frontenac, and its successors that carried vital supplies into and rich resources out of growing communities, to the fire on board the passenger ship Noronic in 1949 -- an event that marked the beginning of the end for the steamboat era -- and the preservation of the Segwun, Smith shows us the range and colour of these magnificent vessels' history. With a rich collection of paintings, photographs, and other illustrations from museums and archives across Ontario, Steamboats on the Lakes tells the unique story of the boats, the dangerous waters they plied, and the daring entrepreneurs and hardy sailors who navigated the many rough and glorious passages of the steamships' heyday.
