Niagara

by Whitecap Books, Tanya Lloyd Kyi
     
 

For thousands of years, Niagara Falls has thundered over the rock escarpment. It churns through massive generators, producing enough electricity to light 24 million 100-watt bulbs. And for centuries, the falls have attracted daredevils and thrill seekers. Tightrope walkers have teetered over the precipice while fame-seekers cast themselves over the edge in barrels.

Overview

For thousands of years, Niagara Falls has thundered over the rock escarpment. It churns through massive generators, producing enough electricity to light 24 million 100-watt bulbs. And for centuries, the falls have attracted daredevils and thrill seekers. Tightrope walkers have teetered over the precipice while fame-seekers cast themselves over the edge in barrels. More than 14 million visitors each year now flock to Niagara Falls. In the surrounding region they discover the historic communities, orchards, inns, and wineries that make this area one of the most picturesque in Canada.
