Secrets of the Lakes

ecrets of the Lakes: Stories From the History of Lake Simcoe and Lake Couchiching

By Monica Frim Secrets of the Lakes is a collection of stories and photographs that traces the fascinating history of Lake Simcoe and Lake Couchiching. A popular destination for cottagers and pleasure-seekers today, these lakes were once part of the essential inland waterway that opened up the region and the North American interior to waves of Indians and explorers, fur traders and soldiers, and settlers and entrepreneurs who carved out an existence from the wilderness. This evolution from strategic waterway to tranquil pleasure ground is explored by visiting places where the past still resonates--historic communities, shipwrecks, abandoned sites and stately manors. The book includes over 100 stories and 170 archival photographs from places around Lakes Simcoe and Couchiching to enliven any journey on or around these beautiful waters.
