Hind, Da Silva launch 75th anniversay book on Sherwood Inn July 8 at resort
BALA — One of Muskoka’s nicest resorts — with one of the best menus on the lakes — is celebrating a milestone this summer.
And to celebrate the occasion, authors Andrew Hind and Maria Da Silva have written a book tracing the resort’s history from its founding (in actual fact, from before its founding … but that’s a story for the book to reveal) to today, which will be arriving from the printer within a matter of weeks.
The 70-page book, illustrated with more than three dozen photos (many of them never published before), will be available locally at Muskoka Boat and Heritage Centre, MuskokaLakesMuseum, and Sherwood Inn.
The authors will be on hand at MuskokaLakesMuseum’s annual Resort Night (taking place at Sherwood on July 8th) to talk about the book and inn, and sell and sign copies of the book.
Details for that event can be found through the museum itself.
Hind and Da Silva are co-authors of 17 books, including Muskoka Resorts: Then and Now, Ghost Towns of Muskoka, Cottage Country Ghosts, and RMS Segwun: Queen of Muskoka.
Their work also appears in numerous periodicals, including Muskoka Life and Parry Sound Sideroads.
