THE LAKE

AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF MANITOBANS’ COTTAGE COUNTRY

COMBINING THE BEAUTIFUL original photography of Tom Thomson and Dave Reede with hundreds of rarely-seen archival photographs, The Lake takes us on a stunning visual tour of the cottage country of Manitoba.

This illustrated history looks at the roots of our watery obsession and investigates the cultural, social and regional implications of each of the different lake areas in Manitoba’s exceedingly diverse geography.

A wide range of authors — including Christopher Dafoe, Martha Brooks and Charles Gordon — add poignant vignettes of what ‘going to the lake’ has meant to them over the years.
