Abstract:

"This is the dramatic first sentence of Life in a Thundering Bay, a remarkable collection of stories that brings to life the early days of Fort William and Port Arthur, Ontario. Amazingly, many of these stories have been lost, or at least very difficult to find, for 100 years, and this is the first time they have been brought together in a book. In their own words, pioneers of Northern Ontario describe their unforgettable experiences: read about Catherine Vickers' spectacular canoe journey to Kakabeka Falls in 1873, witness a 'vagabond's' street fight in Port Arthur in 1883, and relive J.C. Bank's frozen nightmare on Lake Superior during the Great Storm of 1893. You will also find the answer to the long-standing question: Why is Thunder Bay called Thunder Bay? These stories remind us that life on the North Shore of Lake Superior has always been a gamble and an adventure, which makes for great reading."--Back cover.
