The Adirondacks 1830 - 1930
Images of America Series
By Donald R. Williams

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 thier forty-six high peaks, one-hundred-mile canoe route, one-hundred-thirty- three-mile Northville-to-Lake Placid Trail, thirty thousands 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.
