J. R. Booth: "Lumberman, Railroad Builder, Industrialist and Great Canadian" - $20.00 CDN : Summary

 

John Rudolphus Booth (1827-1925) had a significant influence on Algonquin Provincial Park, the Ottawa Valley, and the City of Ottawa. He was a businessman of note, who built an empire based on timber, lumber, grain, pulp and paper, and much more. At one time, he owned the largest lumber mills in the world, and he employed thousands of men in his bush camps. Booth was behind the construction of a railway from Georgian Bay to Ottawa, with parts of the roadbed now converted to Algonquin Park's Old Railway Bike Trail. Continued interest in knowing more about this great Canadian has prompted this book on his life and accomplishments.
