Now its path lies hidden and forgotten lower than sidewalks and farmland, although its effect can nonetheless be seen.The Toronto wearing position brings Southern Ontario’s most crucial First countries path again to lifestyles. Retracing the traditional portage from Lake Ontario to Lake Simcoe, Glenn Turner unearths the dramatic occasions and amazing characters that marked Toronto’s earliest days, and indicates how the trail performed an important position within the historical past of the Wendat (Huron), Haudenosaunee (Iroquois), and Mississauga First international locations.

Many images, maps, and reproductions provide either hikers and armchair voyageurs a glance at what continues to be this present day of this interesting portage path, and an perception into the way it has affected the expansion of the better Toronto zone.
