Northern Ontario (Soft Cover)
by David E. Scott    « View this author's BIO

Excerpt:
After the American Revolution (1783) t was decided that the Canada/USA border should follow the Rainy River to The Lake of the Woods, not west; and where exactly on the lake was its "northwestern part?"
It wasn't until 1872 (90 years later), that a point on the lake was agreed upon. But when the rest of the Canada/USA border was established along the 49th parallel (the line that now forms the Canada/USA border from Manitoba to British Columbia), it left a small peninsula of land north of ths line still in the USA. Quite a mess. And all Wendigo's fault.

Synopsis
A humourous look at the history and some of the places of Northern Ontario. Not all the places. There are 387 places in Northern Ontario, not counting all the places where there are no people and which are therefore difficult to count as official places. Anyway, 387 places is a lot of places. And you can only put so many places into a little book.
