Dan Douglas: Northern Algoma, a People's History

£6.99

Product description

Northern Algoma is a vast wilderness north of Lake Superior and a land rich in natural resources - fur, gold, iron ore, endless tracts of forests. Its modern history began in the eighteenth century with the fur traders. Then came the gold-seekers, followed by the lumber barons and the industrialists. As railways opened up the area to the world, more and more people came to seek their fortune, work, and adventure. The pages of Northern Algoma are filled with the voices of many of these people as they look back and remember. More than sixty historic photographs accompany their words.

This paperback is in very good condition. Top corners of the front and back cover are slightly bent, and the top edge of the book is slightly dirty. No other damage, and pages are clean and white throughout.
