Along the Shore examines the Toronto waterfront, past and present, through the lens of four lakefront communities and districts ― the Scarborough shore (including the Bluffs), the Beach, the Island, and the Lakeshore (New Toronto, Mimico, Humber Bay, and Long Branch). Each retains a direct and immediate connection with Lake Ontario and the natural world. Exploring the history, landscape, geography, and people of each of these waterfront areas reveals a rich heritage that has gone largely unrecognized and is for the most part forgotten.

The book brings to life the stories, many of which have never been told, of the lakefront and the people who have inhabited these special places. It features original interviews with well-known Canadians like director Norman Jewison, who was raised in the Beach, and swimmer Marilyn Bell. Attention is also paid to the early First Nations presence in each of the featured areas. Historical, anecdotal, descriptive, and at the same time deeply personal, Along the Shore is more than a local history, it is a layered journey that focuses on the connection between Toronto's natural waterfront heritage and its people.
