Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The East's greatest wilderness, the Adirondack region of New York State, shares its history and lore with Native Americans, early settlers, artists, writers, sportsmen, professors, and others. The Adirondacks are known to outdoor lovers, skiers, and year-round visitors for their forty-six high peaks, one-hundred-mile canoe route, one-hundred-thirty-three-mile Northville-to-Lake Placid Trail, thirty thousand miles of mountain streams, and three thousand lakes. The Adirondacks: 1830-1930, tells how the region was first "discovered," explored, and preserved as the six-million-acre Adirondack Park, the largest park in the contiguous United States, a patchwork of public and private lands governed by one of the largest regional zoning plans in the country. With more than two hundred stunning photographs and fascinating tales of the region, it traces the development of the hamlets, the great camps, the guides, and the furniture and tanning businesses.

About the Author

Donald R. Williams is a recognized expert on the Adirondacks, his "home country." A retired educator, he is the author of five books on the subject and a licensed Adirondack guide. He has lectured extensively, served for twenty years as Adirondack editor for the New York Sportsman magazine, written for Adirondack Life magazine, and produced a weekly Adirondack column for four newspapers. This unique collection of images and text is a fitting tribute to this splendid wilderness.
