Editorial Reviews

The most comprehensive guide to waterfalls in the province ever compiled... superb color photography and informative text.

— Toronto Sun

A splendidly illustrated overview of the impressive cascades across the province... breathtaking.

— Niagara Gazette

Harris, a self-proclaimed waterfall junkie, tells the reader why the waterfalls are interesting, and gives detailed instructions on how to find them.

— Canadian Press

Fischer has done a remarkable job of capturing the variety of these falls... [Harris] is refreshingly honest. Even though he loves his subject, he recognizes that not every waterfall is breathtaking.

— The Muskokan

It's rare to have a book that's so user friendly, packed with information yet beautiful enough to hold its own on the coffee table with any photography tome. A must-read for anyone touring the countryside.

— Kitchener-Waterloo Record

Not just another pretty picture book.... an indispensable companion for many Ontario nature photographers who are hooked on shooting falls... Waterfalls of Ontario captures the allure, enchantment and fascination of falling water in a handsome pictorial and travel guide.

— Canadian Camera

Full-page photographs provide the spiritual side to what is otherwise a very practical guidebook to exploring 80 different provincial waterfalls... A coffee table book on one hand, a guidebook on the other... nicely balanced, organized and provocative.

— Toronto Star

Stunning photographs... This book is a good reference before travelling in Ontario.

— Cottage Times
