The Eternal Circus
" Niagara Falls has mesmerized everyone from Walt Whitman to the Prince of Wales.
" Gordon Donaldson's NIAGARA! THE ETERNAL CIRCUS covers both history and legend to show how Niagara Falls became synonymous with tourism. Donaldson introduces the colorful array of Indians, explorers, and fortune hunters who helped put Niagara Falls on the map-from the tavern owner who invented the cocktail to the hotel-keeper who invented the tourist trap. "
" We see Niagara as a prestigious arena for the stunters of the mid-nineteenth century, luring tightrope walkers, divers, swimmers, and barrel riders. We see it as a symbol of engineering progress where bridge builders experimented with untried methods.
