This is a highly informative book about one of the areas of what is now called Ontario, which has been heavily touched by the hand of history. The combination of its location on the main migration path into "Upper Canada" and the fertility of its land caused many a settler to stop and set up their future homes in this county of Dundas. As a result, the area is a "melting pot" of ethnic traditions, and rich in its culture.
The author, J. Smyth Carter of Rowena, Ontario, was scrupulous in his research and does his best to identify all the influences which have guided the development of this county. In addition to the influence brought by the settlers, the countys location on the north shore of the St Lawrence, between the cities of Cornwall and Kingston made it a prime site for the failed invasions of the 1812 conflict, and many of the old battlefields are still remembered, and can be found marked to this day.
A wonderful book for those wanting to understand the history of this area and of those who settled and developed it. Access to this cache of densely packed information has been greatly enhanced by making this digital reproduction fully computer searchable.
