Touring the Giant's Rib: A Guide to the Niagara Escarpment

Called the Giant's Rib, this bony ridge of land rises from Queenston on the Niagara River and retreats from Lake Huron at Tobermory, emerging once again at Manitoulin and St. Joseph islands.

This book is designed to whet your appetite for your own exploration and discovery: from the myriad waterfalls that cascade from the escarpment's heights, to the sweeping valleys and gorges and to the abundant wetlands.

It is organized into 4 sections:
  • The Carolinian Canada Zone
    • Niagara Falls to Grimsby
    • Winona to Lake Medad
    • Mount Nemo to Silver Creek
  • Great Lakes Forest
    • Terra Cotta to Violet Hill
    • Boyne Valley to Nottawasaga Lookout
    • Pretty River Valley to Rocklyn Creek
    • Walter Falls to Colpoy's Range
  • The Bruce Peninsula
    • Southern Bruce Peninsula Loop
    • Northern Bruce Peninsula Loop
  • The Freshwater Archipelago
    • Manitoulin - Island of Gitche Manitou
Complete with maps and beautiful colour photographs.
