The Bruce Beckons: The Story of Lake Huron's Great Peninsula

Framsida
University of Toronto Press, 1 jan. 1953 - 235 sidor

First published in 1952, The Bruce Beckons was immediately acclaimed as a delightful guide to a uniquely beautiful and fascinating part of Ontario. Separating Georgian Bay from Lake Huron, the Bruce Peninsula's remarkable natural history and richly varied wildlife today continue to draw thousands of visitors every year. W. Sherwood Fox, a distinguished scholar who was for twenty years president of the University of Western Ontario, knew and loved the Bruces history and its folklore throughout his life. During his retirement he served several years as honorary president of the Federation of Ontario Naturalists.
