Georgian Bay's pristine beaches and windswept, rocky islands provide a summer haven for Canadians and Americans alike. Whether it’s a slice of glacier-scraped granite inhabited by a lone white pine or an abstract composition of cobalt blue water shimmering in the afternoon sun, Grandmaison’s photographs convey an intimate knowledge of the area’s unforgettable beauty.

Jackson. ---Georgian Bay: A breathtaking photographic portrait of Canada' s 'inland sea' ---The natural, rugged beauty of Georgian Bay has inspired generations of Canadian artists, such as Tom Thomson and A. Y. Jackson, who have captured the emotional impact that this large body of water and its surroundings have had on those who visit the region. Often called the sixth Great Lake, Georgian Bay is the northeastern arm of Lake Huron, the fifth-largest lake in the world. Located between Manitoulin Island to the northwest (the world's largest freshwater island) and by the Bruce Peninsula to the southwest, it is more or less separated from the rest of Lake Huron. Georgian Bay is a vacation haven, with crowds assembling at the many beautiful sandy beaches along its shores. Others seek solitude in the windswept, rocky, and sparsely treed islands that attract cottagers and tourists alike who visit by motorboat, sailboat, kayak, or canoe. Mike Grandmaison lived in the Georgian Bay area for some twenty-five years. With camera in hand, he has explored the region by foot, canoe, and kayak to capture those intimate photographs that represent the essence of the area. Whether it is a chunk of glacier-scraped pink or white granite inhabited by a lone, windswept pine shaped by the prevailing westerly winds, or an abstract composition of cobalt blue water shimmering in the afternoon sun, Grandmaison treats us to the beauty and wonder of Georgian Bay. Gerard M. Courtin is Professor Emeritus at Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario, and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Forensic Science. He spent his career as a full-time faculty member working on naturally and anthropogenically stressed ecosystems. He presently splits his time between teaching environmental science courses, both at his home institution and in the United States, and forensic botany research and case work for law enforcement agencies. He takes every opportunity that comes his way to spend time in his kayak studying the natural history of Georgian Bay."---, overseas shipping (outside of Canada and the USA ) will require additional postage, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo.
