Thirty-eight inspiring trips in Ontario's ruggedly beautiful Georgian Bay country.

Wildlife author Kas Stone explores the coastal landscape of Lake Huron's Georgian Bay, often called the "sixth Great Lake." She presents accessible adventures -- via kayak, canoe or on foot -- through the ruggedly beautiful Ontario terrain.

These 38 excursions include hiking routes ranging from scenic hour-long strolls to more breathtaking -- and strenuous -climbs and multi-day (but portage-free!) paddling expeditions in four distinct regions:

The Northern Shore: Killarney and the French River The Eastern Shore: the Thirty Thousand Islands The Southern Shore: Severn Sound and Nottawasaga Bay The Western Shore: the Bruce Peninsula.

To whet the appetite of any adventurer, the book has plenty of tantalizing photographs and tales from Georgian Bay's fascinating history. Each chapter includes important information on access points and trip planning; a list of maps and charts for the area; and suggested websites and useful publications.
