Industry in the Wilderness

The People, the Buildings, the Machines — Heritage in Northwestern Ontario


Filled with photographs, both historic and contemporary, this engaging book looks at the industrial pioneers of northwestern Ontario, and the activities which brought them to the wilderness: surveying, railroading, lumber, gold, bush piloting, transportation, and hydro power.

Rasky lets the pioneers tell their own story, through their own reminiscences, and by the monuments they have left behind.

Published with the assistance of the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Culture, and the Ontario Ministry of Northern Affairs.
