Summary note
The story of the Scugog Carrying Place is a multifaceted one, but at the core of the story is the mystery of a forgotten cabin in the woods whose story has not been totally told until now. Included is an exploration of how our historical heritage is being sacrificed in the race to develop farmland into industrial land.
