An exploration of the unique and unusual places in Ontario that are steeped in history and folklore.

Using updated and archival material from Discover Ontario, a popular radio show that ran from 1987 until 2004, author Terry Boyle invites you to explore the hidden, unusual, and unknown sites and stories from around Ontario.

Revisit an era of mobsters and rum-runners during the years of prohibition. Traverse the deadly waves of the Hudson Bay and visit the watery graves of shipwrecks scattered among the province’s waterways and coastlines. Learn about Project Magnet, the Canadian government’s top-secret mission to observe and study UFOs. Discover the Ontario connection to the mysterious Crystal Skull of Indiana Jones fame. Or take a day trip to explore the beauty of the natural world and the rich history of many of Ontario’s communities.

Told in a series of short vignettes drawing on a combination of local history and Canadian folklore, Discover Ontario reveals all this and more — a side of the province not often shared in guidebooks.

  • Mysteries, secrets, superstitions, and other amazing and unique stories from across Ontario
  • Full of local colour and history, folklore, superstitions, and ghost stories and the paranormal.
  • Ontario sites relating to the Roswell Crash, the War of 1812, Irish ghosts, and Prohibition.<.li>
  • Developed from the author's radio show, Discover Ontario, which ran from 1897 to 2004 on Classical 96.3 (Cobourg) and Classical 103 (Toronto), and which grew a steady fan base over the years.
  • Book appeals to out-of-province visitors, Ontarians looking for non-traditional sites to visit, fans of ghost stories and the paranormal, and social history readers.

Terry Boyle is a Canadian author, lecturer, and teacher who has shared his passion for history and folklore in many books since 1976, including four Haunted Ontario titles. He has hosted television’s Creepy Canada and radio’s Discover Ontario on Classical 103.1 FM. He lives near Burk’s Falls, Ontario.
