I love paddling in Northern Ontario and want to learn more about this wonderful place. I'm looking for one or more books that detail the geology, anthropology, & botany/zoology of the Canadian Shield. Any favorites out there?

In February 2022 I abandoned a project of collecting material - text and maps - related to the Canadian Shield. True North Books and Maps is still alive, even if neglected! It has about 20 downloadable PDF and jpg files available.

The presence of adverts was annoying and I just could not come up with a satisfying look to the site. Here is a list of materials - books and maps - that I had uploaded:

THE INDIAN TRIBES OF THE UPPER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY AND REGION OF THE GREAT LAKES

Map of Part of the District of Nipissing (showing agricultural lands surveyed on Lake Temiskaming Ontario
