Book The Trails of the Adirondacks Description/Summary:

This official book published with the Adirondack Mountain Club celebrates America's original hiking destination through breathtaking contemporary photography, maps, rarely seen archival photos, and a text that brings the history of the trails to life. The Adirondack Park is home to the largest protected natural area in the lower 48 states--six million acres including more than 10,000 lakes, 30,000 miles of rivers and streams, and thousands of miles of hiking trails running from mountain summits through a wide variety of habitats including wetlands and old-growth forests. How better to view this wilderness than afoot on the many trails, many leading to some of the most picturesque summits in North America. There are trails for everyone in the Adirondacks. Today, thousands enjoy hiking, skiing, and snowshoeing trails to backcountry destinations all around the park while others aspire to climb all 46 peaks. Water trails include the historic Fulton Chain of Lakes, Raquette River, and Saranac River routes, in addition to more intimate paddles across wild lakes and waters that meander through towering mountains and verdant forests. Every season has its own charm, all portrayed here in this one of a kind volume of history and photography along Adirondack trails. This is a book for anyone who enjoys travelling through the Adirondack backcountry and includes unique and picturesque destinations throughout the Adirondack Park in addition to a comprehensive history on hiking in the Adirondacks. From the dramatic beauty of the Lake George Wild Forest, to numerous fire tower summits and open ledges and mountaintops scattered around the park, and the rugged splendor of the High Peaks and bucolic beauty of the Champlain Valley, this book covers it all.

The Adirondacks

Author : Paul Schneider
Publisher : Henry Holt and Company
Release : 2016-09-06
Category : History
ISBN : 9781250135209


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.

An Adirondack Passage

Author : Christine Jerome
Publisher : Breakaway Books
Release : 2015-02-25
Category : Sports & Recreation


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

ISBN : 9781646548446


Book ADIRONDACK CAMP LIFE Description/Summary:

This book is a series of real life short stories of the author’s life experiences in the high peaks region of the New York state Adirondacks. Although Steve Rother is, and has been a practicing attorney in New Jersey, he has had deep roots in the Adirondacks from early childhood through his 80th year of life. Those experiences began in 1948, long before the Adirondacks became easily accessible by interstate highways. The experiences became lifelong when his immigrant father, who earlier traveled from New York City to the high peaks by hitch hiking, purchased a camp. These short stories relate how his experiences in the Adirondacks, under the influence of his parents and Adirondack natives, have influenced his identity. {00922945.2}

ISBN : UOM:39015086475541


Book Liming and Fisheries Management Guidelines for Acidified Lakes in the Adirondack Region Description/Summary:

'Liming' is the general term used for the addition of base neutralizing materials to acidic waters and soils. Various base-containing materials may be used, but limestone (calcium carbonate, CaCO3) is predominate in the major surface-water liming programs in the United States, Canada, and Scandinavia (Fraser and Britt 1982). Liming, in fact, has long been used to increase fish productivity in softwater and acidic ponds, lakes, and streams (e.g., Neess 1949, Hasler et al. 1951, Waters 1957, Boyd 1982).
