Dufferin County by Nicola Ross and photography by Rosemary Hasner
Full of contemporary color and historic black-and-white photography, accompanied by fascinating essays, this book will delight and inform both resident and visitor. Formed in 1881, Dufferin County is Ontario's youngest and smallest county, and though its rocky soil makes farming difficult, agriculture has always been the mainstay of Dufferin's economy.

Nicola Ross, executive editor for Alternatives Journal, an award-winning writer and author of three books, teaches freelance writing at Humber College.


In a quick, efficient manner, she turns technical facts, figures and details into well organized and concise prose that captures and holds the reader’s attention. A biologist and accomplished environmental/science writer, Ms. Ross is particularly adept in working with information that deals with climate change, urban sprawl, green economics and corporate environmental performance.
