About this title


In January 1998, five days of freezing rain, up to 100 millimetres, fell in some parts of eastern Canada and the northeastern United States. About 2 million homes – more than 5 million people – were plunged into darkness for up to a month in the dead of winter. It was, indisputably, the storm of the century.

This book is the definitive story of the ice storm, captured in pictures by Canada’s best news photographers. The following newspapers have combined their resources to make this book: La Presse (Montreal), The Gazette (Montreal), The Ottawa Citizen, Le Nouvelliste (Trois Rivières), Le Droit (Ottawa), The Whig-Standard (Kingston), The Standard Freeholder (Cornwall), The Recorder and Times (Brockville) and La Voix de l’Est (Granby). A portion of the proceeds is donated to charity.

About the Author:

Mark Abley was born in England and grew up in western Canada. A Rhodes scholar at Oxford, he has been a books columnist at the Montreal Gazette and winner of a National Newspaper Award for critical writing. He continues to work at the Gazette as a features writer. In addition to the text for the best-selling photographic book The Ice Storm (1998), he has written two books of poetry, one travel book (Beyond Forget: Rediscovering the Prairies, 1986), and the text for Ottmar Bierwagen’s photographic book Heartland (1989). He lives with his wife and two daughters in Pointe Claire, Quebec.
