Steve Manders been exploring the hinterland of Kingston Ontario for 50 years now. He has tracked down over 60 ghost railways and 9 tramways in eastern Ontario. Who built them, how and why? He has travelled many historic railways, roads and paddled most of the rivers and lakes. For most people, they are just scenic rivers or lakes, for Steve, they are adventure, tranquility and history. He is an avid photographer of everything along the way. This led to giving slide show presentations to the local historical societies and was prompted into putting it into books. This is a record of the men that toiled building our nation, and a scenic tour of what they left behind.
