From Our Editors

In the heart of Southwestern Ontario, more than 60 villages once flourished, populated by pioneers, emigrants from Europe and veterans from the Napoleonic Wars and the War of 1812. These towns prospered under the influence of mills and the railway. Now they are no more, but their stories offer a unique glimpse into Canadian history. In Vanished Villages of Middlesex, Jennifer Grainger offers a fascinating look at the rise to prosperity and fall to extinction of pioneer communities.
