Niagara Falls is one of the great masterpieces of Creation. Wherever the observer stands to drink in the majesty of the mighty river and its falls, he or she is struck with the awesome beauty and grandeur of God’s great handiwork.
Annually, the falls host over 14,000,000 visitors, many from half a globe away, who are drawn by the stories, pictures, beauty, and mystery of Niagara. Kings and commoners, residents and paupers have all come to stand and marvel at the dignity of nature’s great achievement. Others have come to risk their lives for fame and fleeting fortune, while still others make the supreme sacrifice in both successful and unsuccessful attempts to save those caught in the turbulent embrace of the raging river.
Within these pages you will meet some whose names have become synonymous with the place of breathtaking beauty – the place of Thundering Waters.
