About this title
A lively book illustrated with archival photos, Secrets of Lake Simcoe is a valuable addition to local history collections and provides a refreshing way for anyone to view what some consider to be Canada's sixth Great Lake.
At the heart of central Ontario, Lake Simcoe has played an important role in the province's history for hundreds of years. Today a popular destination for pleasure-seekers and cottagers, it helped open up the region to explorers and fur traders, settlers and entrepreneurs.
The lake has secrets aplenty and this book offers a selection of stories of dramatic episodes from the lake's past. There are shipwrecks, stately resorts, vanished industries, forgotten forts and even murder most foul.
MARIA DA SILVA has always had a passion for history and ghost stories.
ANDREW HIND is a freelance writer who lives in Bradford, Ontario. They are co-authors of several other titles in the Amazing Stories series, most recently Rebels Against Tories in Upper Canada 1837.
