Bon Echo: The Denison Years documents the era when famous artists, intellectuals and theatrical personalities visited the strikingly beautiful Lake Mazinaw area in Ontario’s rugged Land O’ Lakes district, to both play and work. From the construction of Bon Echo Inn by American Dr. Weston Price to the creation of today’s Bon Echo Provincial Park, the author has been privy to the "inside" story.
The struggles and ideals of the early Toronto feminist Flora MacDonald Denison and her author-playwright son, Merrill, are well recorded in this important book. The author, a good storyteller, obviously learned plenty from the old master during her many years as his manuscript typist, a relationship that ended with Merrill Denison’s death in 1975.
