Description: Lake Ontario is the smallest and most easterly of the Great Lakes of North America. It is bounded on the north by the Canadian province of Ontario and on the south by Ontario's Niagara Peninsula and the U.S. state of New York.
Easternmost of the Great Lakes, Lake Ontario is bordered by both New York and Ontario. Upon its pristine surface, countless vessels have sailed, but its bottom depths are littered with the skeletons of shipwrecks, including HMS Ontario, caught and destroyed in one of the sudden storms that often turn this sea-like lake deadly. Daring mariners, male and female, have seen their share of peril, and battles during wars between Britain and the United States and Canada have also been waged here. From Huron canoes to today's Sunday sailors who venture from shore only during warmer months, the local author tells some of the lake's most exciting stories.
