The Day The Falls Stood Still

The Day the Falls Stood Still pulls us into the maelstrom of Niagara Falls at the time when rivermen drew daredevils from the brink, the promise of hydroelectric power wooed a nation and only a few dared question our relationship with the mighty river. Powerful and eloquent, a love story, a tribute to the river, and a recognition that no choice is ever made without consequences, The Day the Falls Stood Still is a novel to savour, as powerful as the Falls themselves.
