In January 1998, five days of freezing rain, up to 100 millimetres, fell in some parts of eastern Canada and the northeastern United States. About 2 million homes -- more than 5 million people -- were plunged into darkness for up to a month in the dead of winter. It was, indisputably, the storm of the century. This book is the definitive story of the ice storm, captured in pictures by Canada's best news photographers. The following newspapers have combined their resources to make this book: La Presse (Montreal), The Gazette (Montreal), The Ottawa Citizen, Le Nouvelliste (Trois Rivières), Le Droit (Ottawa), The Whig-Standard (Kingston), The Standard Freeholder (Cornwall), The Recorder and Times (Brockville) and La Voix de l'Est (Granby). A portion of the proceeds is donated to charity.
