THE ADIRONDACK READER by Paul F.- Ed. mieson


Email this review


This is ""a book about the land on the other side of Sunday Rock,"" which turns its back on the world of clocks and deadlines. Paul Jamieson includes both well known pieces and rarely presented Adirondackana, both fact and fiction. There is some history of the region, forest legends and lore, mountaineering, hunting and other encounters with the natural world as recorded by such figures as Francis Parkman, James Fennimore Cooper, Robert Louis Stevenson, Edward Livingston Trudeau, Fosburgh, William Chapman White, William James, Ernest Thompson Seton, Richard enry Dana, Jr. and many others less well known among the 70 contributors. Regional and outdoor appeal.
