Waterfalls of Ontario

Featuring over 150 waterfalls.

Praise for previous editions:

"A very practical guidebook to exploring 80 different provincial waterfalls... A coffee table book on one hand, a guidebook on the other... nicely balanced, organized and provocative."
--Toronto Star

"It's rare to have a book that's so user friendly, packed with information yet beautiful enough to hold its own on the coffee table with any photography tome. A must-read for anyone touring the countryside."
--Waterloo Region Record
