Adirondack Camp Stories
By William J. O'Hern
Adirondack Camp Stories is a highly entertaining storybook, with historic pictures, that links readers with early Adirondack camps- from the simplest backwoods shelters to restful boarding houses and hotels that offered comfortable amenities. There are sporting camp stories, stimulating true tales of remarkable guides and game protectors, accounts of hermits, and camp camaraderie that draw the reader back to an earlier time in the mountains. It is not necessary to read this book from start to finish, since it is not the kind of continuous narrative, but it is the kind of collection of stories that one can pick up and turn to any chapter for insight into mountain life.
