Ranging from the southern edge of the Algonquin Dome to the outskirts of Kingston,ON, The Land Between is rich in history, recreation, and unique species.
It is a complex, irregularly-shaped strip of land about 240 km long and 20-40 km wide, its core of two strips - Precambrian, and Ordovician. Parts of The Land Between comprise some of Ontario's beloved cottage country. The area is a storehouse of biodiversity.
"Every building, every streetscape, every farmstead, every marsh, every lake, every rocky outcrop, every individual in The Land Between has a story to tell, and each speaks freely when consciously addressed."
A.Y. Jackson was a resident of The Land Between, as was Stephen Leacock, and Al Purdy. The Algonquin First Nation called The Land Between home.
Land Between residents are passionate about their territory, and this book provides an ample and exuberant illustration of that fact.
