Editorial Reviews


The photographs in [this] glossy, full-colour book are breathtaking and are often taken from the same vantage point as a Group of Seven painter.... The photos and paintings are placed side-by-side showing the vast artistic interpretations of the landscape. (Laura Cudworth The Beacon Herald (Stratford) 2007-05-25)

With this comprehensive "where-to" book, you'll discover the best places this province has to offer to inspire the creative spirit... This beautifully illustrated guide is a must-have for any visual artist possessing a love of nature. (www.CanadianGeographic.ca 2007-05-00)

If you love to pack your camera, sketch pad or paint set in the car and head out to explore Ontario's great outdoors, then this book is worth a look.... This book reaffirms the abundant beauty that Ontario boasts and the incredible artistic talents that make their home here. (Kitchener Record 2007-06-02)

This guide to wild Ontario will be a great help in determining the direction you will take,and where your talents take you as you discover a new, distinctly Ontario destination for your next adventure.... a stunning and moving guide that is truly "wild." (Joan Sutter Shelf Life 2007-09-00)

Here, finally, is the book we've all been waiting for. (Jane Champagne Shoreline Beach (Port Elgin, ON) 2007-08-29)

Organized according to the province's major travel regions (including all the major cottaging areas), this is a book for anyone with an artistic spirit. (Maureen Littllejohn The Toronto Star 2008-08-16)

Fabulous ... makes me want to get in my car and travel to each and every place described. (Lois Cooper Muskoka Today 2007-06-14)

Packed with vibrant examples of art inspired by Ontario's wilderness, the guide is a useful resource for amateurs and professionals alike. (John Mather Globe and Mail 2007-07-07)

You won't find too many books about the province's pristine corners that are as beautiful as , an image-rich guide geared to artists, photographers, and appreciators of both. (Jim Moodie The Manitoulin Expositor (Little Current, ON) 2007-08-08)

Perhaps the most comprehensive resource of its kind. (Ottawa Citizen 2007-08-19)

A one-of-a-kind book that focuses not only on extraordinary art communities throughout Ontario, but also on the must-see sights the province has to offer. (Jake Good The Muskokan 2007-05-17)

Perfect for someone seeking a getaway with a creative twist. (Diane Slawych The Toronto Sun 2007-12-19)

To assist adventurers in their quest for beauty, the authors, a photographer and a writer, have created a handsome where-to guide book (rather than a how-to one), offering a great amount of useful information to many of Ontario's artistic resources.... Most of the numerous and beautifully reproduced color illustrations come from lakes and rivers, which will surely delight the hearts and minds of all wilderness canoeists. (Toni Harting Nastawgan 2007-12-00)

This really is a must-have guide for anyone interested in exploring and appreciating the great outdoors and discovering the best places to sketch, paint, sculpt, carve and photograph the Ontario wilderness.... richly illustrated... perhaps the most comprehensive resource of its kind.

Format: Paperback
Finding this book to be a joy visually, I have shared it with my close group of fellow artists. As well as being inspirational to just mull over, it has been a fine source of information for future road trips to galleries and scenery for photo ops. With a friend not an artist, but with a history of canoeing Eastern Ontario,I have shared ideas of placs to try to find. I keep the book at hand, so I can refresh my spirit in its pages on a dreary winter day. I first heard of the book in an author's interview on CBC radio, and hence looked for it on the internet.

If you're looking for a list of galleries, art shows or art museums, great.

If you're a painter or photographer looking for info and ideas on places to visit to create your own art, this book is worthless.
