Summary, etc.:
"A timely portrait of Ontario's Greenbelt and the people who nurture it. Stretching from the Niagara Peninsula to Tobermory and Rice Lake - encompassing farmland, forests, and watersheds - the Greenbelt is the largest protected peri-urban green space in the world ... Mausberg not only celebrates the people who live in the Greenbelt - the farmers, entrepreneurs, artists, cyclists, mountain climbers, and many others who have been enriched by the land - but also recounts how the Greenbelt was created 12 years ago, including interviews with three politicians who made it happen: former Ontario premiers Dalton McGuinty, Mike Harris, and Bill Davis."--Back cover.
