City of Niagara Falls Canada, Niagara Falls, ON, 1990, ISBN:0969045743 1990 0969045743 / 9780969045748 
SEIBEL, George A. The Niagara Portage Road : A History of the Portage on the West Bank of the Niagara River. Olive M. Seibel, editor. Niagara Falls, ON : The City of Niagara Falls Canada, 1990. Pp. i-[xi],(1),1-370. Illustrated, occasionally in colour. Double column. Large 8vo, red leatherette with gilt lettering to front and spine.

"As early as 1788 merchant traders began carrying their goods in ox-drawn wagons along the west or British bank [of the Niagara River], beginning at the Lower Landing, present day Queenston, by-passing the Falls until they reached Chippewa, where the Niagara River was once again navigable. On March 31, 1790, the route they used officially became a road, the one we know today as the Portage Road. The Niagara Portage Road is published to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the portage on the west bank becoming an official road.

This book recounts the events which took place on or near this road, from its beginning. A regularly scheduled stage-coach service, operated along the Portage Road as early as 1796, almost twenty years before there was a regular stage-coach service operating out of present-day Toronto. During the War of 1812, battles were fought along the Road at Queenston Heights, Chippawa and Lundy's Lane. At that time even sailing ships were portaged over the Road!" - from the dustjacket.

160 TAYLOR, Jeanette Tidal Passages : A History of the Discovery Islands
Harbour Publishing, Maidera Park, B.C., 2008, ISBN:9781550174359 
TAYLOR, Jeanette. Tidal Passages : A History of the Discovery Islands. (Maderia Park, B.C.) : Harbour Publishing, (2008). First Printing. Pp [i]-xi,(1),1-316. Illustrated. Map. 8vo, forest green cloth, copper lettering to spine. "At the north end of British Columbia's great inland sea, the Inside Passage divides amongst a scatter of islands whose breathtaking beauty makes them one of the Northwest's most popular cruising destinations. Unofficially known as the Discovery Islands (named after the main passage through them), Read, Cortes, Sonora, Maurelle, Hardwicke, Stuart, Redonda and Thurlow Islands are sparsely populated today but bristled with life in earlier times. Tidal Passages also covers many smaller islands and the surrounding mainland inlets (though not Quadra Island, which is the subject of a separate book by the author). The evocative names of the old island communities revealmuch about the salty culture that once flourished here: Whaletown, Refuge Cove, Mansons Landing, Gorge Harbour, Seaford, Deceit Bay, Big Bay, Shoal Bay, Surge Narrows and Blind Channel. In this book Jeanette Taylor brings the old history back to vivid life, starting in the days when First Nations held sway and progressing through the peak years of European settlement in the mid-twentieth century to modern times. What emerges from Taylor's colourful pageant is a view of pioneer life that is quintessentially coastal: of potlatches, longhouses, stumpranchers, handloggers, beachcombers, seagoing missionaries, isolation that brought out the worst in some people and the best in others, and through it all the watery element of dugouts, steamships, ferries and tides that pulsed through islander life like a heartbeat." - from the dj.
