This beautiful coffee-table book is a portrait of Ontario’s Greenbelt and the people who nurture it. Stretching from the Niagara Peninsula to Tobermory and Rice Lake—with farmland, forests, and watersheds—the Greenbelt is the largest protected peri-urban urban green space in the world. To be published 12 years after the Greenbelt was founded, The Greenbelt is bursting with gorgeous photography that will inspire and delight anyone who has walked its trails, driven its roads, or tasted its fresh bounty. Burkhard Mausberg, CEO of the Greenbelt Foundation and one of the key players in the protection of its natural beauty, tells the story of how the Greenbelt was established, including interviews with former Ontario premiers Dalton McGuinty, Mike Harris, and Bill Davis. The book also celebrates the people who live in the Greenbelt—artists, farmers, entrepreneurs, cyclists, mountain climbers, and so many others who have been enriched by what makes us quintessentially Canadian: our land. Anyone who appreciates the beauty of Ontario, and especially the allure of its farms and hamlets, waterfalls and caves, fields and trails, will find this book an essential and compelling read.
