Rediscover Toronto history through walking and exploration of city limits. Edward Brown presents his nonfiction book, I Am a Pedestrian, which describes his 159km walk around Toronto's periphery and introduces the city's enthralling history from the unique perspective of the expanding city limits.

With the aid of historic photographs, maps and group discussion, discover how the city has grown from a lonely French outpost in 1750 to the bustling metropolis of today.
