I grew up going to the Adirondacks every summer, but I never knew much about the history of the region. This book is a well-curated journey through the history of Europeans in this wilderness - unfortunately, this collection does not contain any first-hand Iroquois or Algonquin accounts. Sections are organized around the reason people went into the mountains, and much attention is given to the struggle to preserve the land for future generations. A good read that made me miss the Adirondacks ...more

I grew up in the Adirondack region of upstate New York, and at some point I fell in love with mountains. I also love history, so when I discovered this book on my grandparents' shelf my heart skipped a beat. I love the "Lost Pond" tale, and several others. I've found new inspiration for my own writings, being reminded of the places I traveled and loved as a kid. Thank you, Mr. Jamieson.
