Published in 2018 to coincide with Algonquin Park's 125th anniversary, this full colour photographic testimonial is a celebration of the many plants and wildlife found within its protected borders.

Algonquin Park was established in 1893 when the Ontario government acted upon a recommendation of the Royal Commission on Forest Reservation and National Parks in "reserving a portion of the ungranted Crown domain to be set apart as a Forest Reservation and National Park."

From peatlands to coniferous forests, from spring peepers to yellow toadflax, from moose to osprey to beavers and spotted salamanders, the park teems with life all year round.

Set upon the Canadian Shield, Algonquin Park bears the unusual distinction of having rivers flow north, south, east, and west from its domain.

Michael Runtz, author of Dam Builders (9781554553242) has worked as an interpretative naturalist at Algonquin and Point Pelee Parks, in addition to hosting the TV show Wild By Nature. He is the author of ten natural history books, and teaches natural history and ornithology courses at Carleton University.
