The efforts to build the Georgian Bay Ship Canal and the mid-19th-century promotional efforts by railways to market the area as a sportsmans paradise are discussed, and sportsmens literature is cited to demonstrate early environmental conditions and the importance of local guides. The rise of local outfitters and the early appearance of cottagers in the French River are also outlined as well as early 20th-century efforts by Ontario to build roads and lure American motorists to the area.

Quintland, named for the famed Dionne Quintuplets, as a pilgrimage site and resort expansion through to the post-war recovery are investigated and a look at the Nipissing area today reveals that, for many, it remains a wilderness playground.
