Book The Adirondacks Description/Summary:

His book is a romance, a story of first love between Americans and a thing they call "wilderness." For it was in the Adirondacks that masses of non-Native Americans first learned to cherish the wilderness as a place of recreation and solace. In this lyrical narrative history, the author reveals that the affair between Americans and the Adirondacks was by no means one of love at first sight. And even now, Schneider shows that Americans' relationship with the glorious mountains and rivers of the Adirondacks continues to change. As in every good romance, nothing is as simple as it appears.

Book Canoeing the Adirondacks with Nessmuk Description/Summary:

"She's all my fancy painted her, she's lovely, she is light. She waltzes on the waves by day and rests with me at night. But I had nothing to do with her painting. The man who built her did that. And I commence with the canoe because that is about the first thing you need on entering the Northern Wilderness." Thus opened Nessmuk's first commissioned "letter" for Forest and Stream in 1880. For years thereafter, George Washington Sears, under the penname Nessmuk, contributed a glorious series of pieces on canoeing the Adirondacks, exploring rivers and streams, climbing the many mountains and peaks, and chronicling his long relationship with one of the greatest canoe builders, J. Henry Rushton.

Book Adirondack Portraits Description/Summary:

Adirondack Portraits: A Piece of Time is a moving poetic statement about the Adirondack wilderness and the people who fought the mountains’ relentless environment to settle there at the end of the nineteenth century. The book is also about the remarkable Jeanne Robert Foster (1879–1970). Born in poverty in the Adirondacks, as a young woman she emerged in the center of the literary and artistic circles of her day, an associate of Ford Madox Ford, James Joyce, Ezra Pound, T. S. Eliot, and the Yeatses, father and son. Adirondack Portraits gives us a glimpse into the early life of Jeanne and some of the influences that helped her step from a harsh physical existence into the unforgettable world of New York, Paris, and London in the 1920s. Above all, her poems and prose pieces are, in the words of Alfred Kazin, “an attempt to recover a vanished time, to record with love and admiration and enduring wonder a life of hardship, endless exertion, and perhaps above all, the kind of isolation that used to dominate country life in America.”

Book An Adirondack Passage Description/Summary:

A paddling classic back in print with new maps, photos, details, and afterword. Christine Jerome walked into the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, NY, and promptly fell in love with a 9-foot, 10½-pound canoe named the Sairy Gamp. More than a century before, in 1883, the Sairy Gamp had been paddled and portaged through the Adirondacks by a sixty-one-year-old writer named George Washington Sears (his pen name was Nessmuk). The more Jerome learned about Sears, the more she wanted to follow his route, despite her lack of camping or canoeing experience. In August 1990 she embarked in a 9-foot canoe made of Kevlar and, with her husband, John, accompanying her in a slightly larger boat, set off to retrace Sears’s journey. An Adirondack Passage is part social history, part natural history, part biography of Sears, and part chronicle of a voyage. Summer turns to fall while the Jeromes make their way north, through sunshine and storms, down cottage-lined lakes and lonely wild streams. Gusting winds bully their light canoes and by mid-September the days are colder and shorter; but the longer they paddle, the more attached they become to the beauty around them. Canada geese fly overhead, monarch butterflies flutter southward, and on the larger lakes, young loons gather for their first migration to the sea. Along the way the author pauses to tell us what Sears saw when he passed by, and what happened to his favorite haunts in the ensuing century. As the history of the region unfolds we meet hermits and millionaires, hunting guides and society women, hotelkeepers and dime-novel writers, and one lost dancing bear. Christine Jerome has given us a memorable wilderness experience that readers who have never lifted a paddle will find fascinating and invigorating. This new release from Breakaway Books is the third edition, revised and updated with extra photos, maps, and a new afterword. PRAISE FOR AN ADIRONDACK PASSAGE “A fine piece of work and a great delight. ” —John McPhee “An enchanting record of a canoe trip.” —The New Yorker “A writer of fine and watertight prose. . . . An Adirondack Passage is uncategorizable—at once history, naturalism, sociology, and a love story—but unfailingly graceful.” —Boston Globe “Personal, witty, and thoughtful—one of the best introductions to the area ever produced.” —Audubon “As refreshing a break from the busyness of life as I’ve come across in awhile.” —Newsday “The writing . . . is a constant pleasure. Jerome has a style that suits her subject, quiet and gentle as a paddle in still water. She delivers her lore with wit and whimsy, with fine descriptions and without shrill preaching or righteous posturing.” —Smithsonian “The closest thing to a national nonfiction best-seller that the region has seen in ages, and deservedly so.” —Adirondack Life “A captivating account. . . . She takes us into a world of hermits and millionaires, of wild streams and glorious mountain scenery.” —Publishers Weekly “A delightful tale. . . . An informative, readable adventure whose history and environmental lessons are taught well.” —Library Journal
