Finding True North
Finding True North: A History of One Small Corner of The Adirondacks
By Fran Yardley
In 1968 Fran and Jay Yardley, a young couple with pioneering spirit, moved to t aa remote corner of the Adirondacks to revive the long-abandoned but historic Bartlett Carry Club, with its one thousand acres and thirty-seven buildings. The Saranac Lake- area property had been in Jay's family for generations, and his dream was to restore this summer resort to support himself and, eventually, a growing family. Fran chronicles their journey an, along the way, unearths the history of those who came before, from the 1800s to the present. Offering an evocative glimpse onto the past, Finding True North traces the challenges and transformations of one of the world's most beautiful, least-celebrated places and the people who were tirelessly devoted to it.
