Author Paul Schneider takes readers to the place where America's romance with the wilderness began. A story of first love between Americans and Nature. It was in the Adirondacks that masses of non-Native Americans first learned to cherish the wild as a place of recreation and solace. With lyrical narrative Schneider traces the history of the region, and, as in every good romance, nothing is as uncomplicated as it appears. 40 photos throughout.
