About the book: Robert Burley explores the complex relationship between Toronto’s wilderness and urban life at a pivotal time in history. Commissioned by the City of Toronto, and released in Canada’s sesquicentennial year, this rich and handsomely produced book brings together breathtaking views of the Scarborough Bluffs, the deep ravines that cut through the heart of the city, and the densely wooded trails in the Carolinian forests of the Rouge Valley, part of Canada’s first and only national urban park. Burley’s photographs, complemented by selections of poetry and prose written by celebrated Canadian writers, infuse these sometimes hidden and mysterious places with meaning and contextualize their importance to civic life.
