Shortlisted for the Ottawa Citizen Book Prize for Non-Fiction. This book is full of facts, legends, written and oral histories, and previously unpublished maps and photographs.

Why does the international boundary between the U.S. and Canada erratically through the islands? Where were the many historic battles fought? Who were the first summer people? Read all about it in this fascinating book.
