Discover where the first books in the Hardy Boys series were written, or where Winnie the Pooh or Grey Owl lived in this must-have guide for tourists and residents alike.
Come On Over! Northeastern Ontario A to Z is a single-volume historical and cultural compendium that captures a region rich in history, its quickly made and lost fortunes and the communities that have remade themselves. Elliot Lake morphed from a uranium-mining community to a retirement haven, Sudbury from the world's nickel capital into an educational, health, and business centre. The book captures both the allure and the survivor tenacity of the northeast's single-industry towns that are breaking out of, or are still caught in, the boom-and-bust cycles of the resource industries Canada's wealth relies on.Review -
'CBC Radio listeners in Northeastern Ontario discovered much about their own backyard when Dieter and Graeme shared their knowledge of the region on Morning North. Now readers can continue that journey of discovery through the pages of this book.' - Markus Schwabe, host CBC Morning North
