"For history buffs, nature lovers, bird watchers, and hiking enthusiasts, Historical Walks continues to be the unique guide to the human and natural history of Gatineau Park. Fully illustrated with maps, archival and contemporary photographs, the book is a one-stop reference and handbook to the 363-square kilometre park situated on the Quebec side of the Ottawa River, just 20 minutes north of Parliament Hill by car. In Part I -- The History of Gatineau Park -- Fletcher tells the story of the pioneers and settlers who originally homesteaded here, and explains how the park came into being.
