Summary

Summary

For thousands of years, Niagara Falls has thundered over the rock escarpment. It churns through massive generators, producing enough electricity to light 24 million 100-watt bulbs. And for centuries, the falls have attracted daredevils and thrill seekers. Tightrope walkers have teetered over the precipice while fame-seekers cast themselves over the edge in barrels. More than 14 million visitors each year now flock to Niagara Falls. In the surrounding region they discover the historic communities, orchards, inns, and wineries that make this area one of the most picturesque in Canada. About the Canada series: As expansive as Canada itself, this outstanding series captures outstanding views of panoramic landscapes, brilliant city skylines, and picturesque communities. Each volume focuses on a city or province and features 96 pages and 70 stunning images by internationally renowned photographers, plus descriptive captions.
