about this item

Dagenais offers a history of Montreal by way of its many waterways. The reader learns of Montreal's deep connection to water, from shipping to travel to acting as a food source to simply a place of recreation. The author tracks hundreds of years of manipulation to the surrounding waterways, as well as more recent efforts to return the water to a more natural state. The scholarly, yet accessible read contains many interesting historical photographs displaying the immense infrastructure involved in turning a piece of wilderness into a major metropolis.
