Pictorial History of Algonquin Provincial Park:
Algonquin's natural beauty stands in such contrast to the man-made environment in which we live today, that many of us assume the Park we see now is exactly the way it has always been. People have been associated with this area for over 4500 years, and many of the physical signs are still evident today. An astonishing amount of the Park's history has been recorded on film, and we can still appreciate today such colourful periods as the pioneer loggers, the early rangers, the grand hotels and the railways. This book contains 85 of the best and most representative historical photographs in the Park's archives. Revised and refreshed. 44 pages. Ron Tozer & Dan Strickland. 2012.

Newly published, Algonquin Park - A Place Like No Other will guide the reader through the rich history that led to the Park we know today, beginning with early indigenous hunters and gatherers, their displacement by colonist lumbermen, the formation of the Park in 1893, the growth of lodges camps and cottage leases, the challenges faced by early and latter day park superintendents, the development of a multiple-use concept including both regulated logging and recreation, the influence of today’s Algonquin People on the Park and ongoing negotiations about the role they will have within it and much more. Long-time cottager, and director of The Friends of Algonquin Park, Brian Maltman has said, "This is the definitive work on the human history of the Park, and how it has been shaped by the people who explore, work in, live in and love this place." MacKay. 432 pages. sc. 2018.
