Author's Talk With Rory MacKay

Author's Talk With Rory MacKay

May 11th 2017

 Join Rory MacKay, self identified student of logging history and research archaeologist, in a visual journey back in time to the days of square timber and sawlogs.

Historic photographs from the Algonquin Provincial Park Archives, the Ontario Archives and Library and Archives Canada will carry you from the times of Philemon Wright and Peter Aylen, to those of the McLachlin Brothers and J. R. Booth.  

Rory is the author of More About... J.R. Booth, More About... the Camboose Shanty, and Spirits of the Little Bonnechere (Second Edition).  He is currently working on a history of Algonquin Provincial Park to be published in 2018.
