In the Adirondacks, "The Great Camps" are those large, wonderful homes built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as country retreats, where even today entertaining twelve houseguests for four or five days is routine. But how do you manage it all and still have time to play outdoors and enjoy the guests? Author Phoebe Thorne demystifies the process, sharing the wisdom and recipes handed down from her parents, grandparents, and great grandparents.
In this, the second edition of The Uplands: a Great Camp in the Adirondacks you'll find more recipes as well as stories and portraits describing the four generations of Thornes who spent their summers in Keene Valley from the 1920s and up in the 21st century. The story of the house is the story of those who lived in it, and those who visited it, and also the story of the news owners, loving caretakers of this true Adirondack jewel.
