Last stand : a journey through the ancient cliff-face forest of the Niagara Escarpment

last_stand
This book takes readers on a journey to the ancient cliff-face forests of the Niagara Escarpment. This forest is the oldest and least disturbed ecosystem in eastern North America with living trees up to 1320 years old. It is self-sustaining because it is protected by the cliffs. But this also means that the forest is very hard to see. Not now that the book is available.
