About This Item

Glens Falls, New York U. S. A.: Adirondack Mountain Club. As New 1981. First Edition Thus. Softcover. Marfree, acidfree illus 1st Ed Thus w/ facinating historical photos + excerpt from W Benignus' Shawangunk Mountain Stories &Huckleberry History, Life On Smiley REoad; no names, not marked-in, underscored, clearance or discard. Mails from NYC usually within 12 hours. ; 101 pages; "Engaging+Humorous TRUE TALE of Living in the Mountains, June 12, 2001 \nBy beth ferholt (NYC) -\nThis is a book for those who love the Shawangunk mountains, those who love the mountains, those who love nature, and all who love a good tale told by a great story teller. Ever wanted to live in the mountains? Ever dreamed of building a cabin at your favaorite lookout? Ever looked for an adventurer and nature lover who could make you feel like you were hiking next to them, showering in a sudden downpour, listening for much-needed water to come from the sky during a drought, sitting cozy near the stove while the snow fell and the temperature dropped, listening to the snort of feeding deer during a star-filled night? If so, then this book is for you. \nThis book also contains quite a bit of wonderful anthropological journalism. The author writes about those who lived in these almost uninhabited mountains before him, and he writes with true respect, admiration, even love. It is rare to find an author, an adventurer and explorer at that, with enough self respect and self confidence to give those whose tales he first listens to, and then prints, the final word in his description of the land which was their home first, and is now his home also. .
