Handsomely illustrated, Muskoka Traditions captures the many ways of life that make Ontario’s most famous lake district an extraordinary place for generation after generation of residents and cottagers. The first embracing dive of the season. Musky woodland hunts for springtime’s wild leeks and mushrooms. Exciting annual regattas and glamorous vintage boat shows. Midsummer memories of big-band nights at Dunn’s Pavilion. A tour aboard the majestic Segwun, the oldest commercial vessel in North America. Piloting a sleek mahogany launch along Millionaire’s Row. Silent, snowy February days at historic Clevelands House. It’s all here in this heartfelt collection of photographs and essays by two of Muskoka’s longtime residents.
You will meet boatbuilders and boat collectors, Native artisans and modern painters, farmers and steamboat engineers, owners of rustic cottages and proprietors of top-notch resorts, and explore how pioneer Muskoka became Ontario’s cottage country.
