Description

A glimpse into a way of life that is disappearing by Giller nominee and winner of the Chapters/Books in Canada First Novel Award.They came by rail and by steamer, from Rochester, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Hamilton, and Toronto. They came to an island retreat on the windswept shores of Georgian Bay to escape the summer heat and to enjoy beautiful scenery and bracing air. And, of course, to fish. There, to meet them on the stone stairs leading to the gracious veranda, was Hamilton Davis, the enterprising American who built the Ojibway Hotel in 1906. One hundred years later, with its weathered shingles, its expansive dock, its stately tower, the Ojibway is still therethe hub of a remarkable summer community. Its the kind of place that elsewhere, often, has been allowed to disappear.David Macfarlane chronicles the history of this beloved hotel and tells more than just a story. He offers a glimpse into a way of life that is disappearing and tells the story of a community committed to preserving the focal point of its past. For all those who understand the beauty and bittersweet brevity of a northern summer, At the Ojibway: 100 Summers on Georgian Bay is a book to be treasured.
