Ghosts of the Bay: A Guide to the History of Georgian Bay

Shipwrecks, ghost towns, shattered dreams ... this is Georgian Bay's remarkable history.
Ghosts of the Bay leads you on an expedition to discover the haunting vestiges of Georgian Bay's forgotten past - now an eerie world of shipwrecks, abandoned fishing camps, lumber villages, boom towns, and missions. These worn monuments emerge strong with their colourful tales of adventure, scandal and folklore, revealing the lively and often brutal experiences of those who dared to make a life on these shores. Legends and natural history will bring added meaning to the rugged beauty that surrounds you, drawing you deeper into the ancient rhythms of these magnificent waters.
The guide highlights over 140 sites around the Bay, 50 maps, archival stills, and is filled with practical information and stories gleaned from four years of extensive research with amateur and professional historians from the Georgian Bay area.
Written by Russell Floren and Andrea Gutsche. Edited by Barbara Chisholm . Published by Lynx Images Inc, 1998.
