Published by Boston Mills Press, 2007.


This exciting new "best-of" collection features the author’s all-time favourites, revisited and updated.

In his relentless quest to discover the unusual, Ron Brown has travelled nearly every road in Ontario. This book features 100 of the very best trips from his three best-selling "50 Unusual" collections: 50 Unusual Things to See in Ontario, 50 Even More Unusual Things to See in Ontario, and Ontario’s Secret Landscapes: 50 More Visits to Unusual Ontario.

What’s an unusual thing? According to Ron Brown, it is “anything that is unexpected. Something that shouldn’t belong where you found it.” Most locations are easy to reach from Ontario’s major population centres, and a few are for more adventurous explorers.

Locations include:
  • Castles of the Cuesta
  • Ontario’s Eldorado: Ghosts of the gold fields
  • Holleford Meteor Crater
  • The amazing Holland Marsh: the swamp that feeds the world
  • Ontario’s Taj Mahal: the Thomas Foster Memorial
  • The Floating Mansions of Lemonville
  • The Eight-Sided Main Street
  • The Telltale Grave: The Donnelly Tombstone
  • The Lost Settlement of Newfoundout
  • The Dune that Ate a Town
  • Boats in the Air: The Kirkland Life Lock
  • An Industrial Survivor: Toronto’s Gooderham and Worts Distillery District
  • Strange Serpent Mounds of Rice Lake
  • Massacre at Reesor Siding
  • A Green Sudbury
  • Hell Holes of Eastern Ontario
  • Pickton’s Birdhouse City
  • Magical Cyprus Lake Grotto
  • The County’s Smallest Jail
  • North America’s Longest Stone-Arch Bridge
  • The Mud Church of Shanty Bay
  • Point Pelee: Where Canada begins
  • The Return of Muskoka’s Portage Flyer: The World’s Shortest Railway

  • and much more.
