Welwyn Wilton Katz I know the author of this book. He lives in Ste Lucie, in the Laurentians, and has no connection (that I am aware of) to the Joseph Graham whose picture and other books are mentioned on this page.

Welwyn Wilton Katz Nor is the publisher Sterling, but rather Main Street, a publisher in the Laurentians. It is important to give the correct Joe Graham credit for a book that has been a terrific bestseller both in the Laurentians and in the areas around it. Joe Graham went to school in Ste Agathe des Monts, the only English language school in the Laurentians, and became, with his wife Sheila, a prominant realtor in the area. That was where he became so familiar with the area. Over many years he has researched the geography, geology, homesteads, and gossip of the area, after which he began this lovely book with its beautifully reproduced maps and postcards from the early days of this historical area.
