Magical, Mysterious Lake of the WoodsBook - 2003
Shared by Manitoba, Ontario and Minnesota, Lake of the Woods straddles the Canadian Shield and the Great Plains. This book examines the many faces of the lake, beginning with its geology and examining its long aboriginal past. Author Heather Robertson examines the fur trade years, the settlement and industrial histories and the lake's place today as an exclusive holiday hideaway. Sidebars on the region's wildlife and natural assets round out the book, which is color throughout with archival images, beautiful photographs, hand-drawn illustrations and maps.
