♥ Book Title : Woodswoman IIII
☯ Full Synopsis : "Anne LaBastille and her German shepherds experience more daring, death defying encounters in the wilderness, and with humans, than ever before. WOODSWOMAN IIII covers five years, rather than ten, since life has speeded up both at her log cabin and old farm. Anne juggles hard to achieve balance between making a living as a freelance writer and publisher, and as a cabin-dweller and contemplative. Her humorous descriptions of the miserly book factory show the complex demands on her time. These are contrapuntal to her exquisite images of Adirondack nature and wildlife and the harmony she finds therein. Despite fewer days at the cabin, each visitation holds greater intensity, more loveliness, interdependence and familiarity with her pets and wildlife. Her message to women everywhere is: Be Courageous, Be Independent, and Be Compassionate. Her message to readers is captured in this visionary chronicling of sociological events and ecological changes over 35 years in the Adirondack Park. WOODSWOMAN, WOODSWOMAN II, WOODSWOMAN III, also available from West of the Wind Publications, Inc., Westport, NY."Article| no defined| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Bob Marshall in the Adirondacks
☯ Full Synopsis : "Bob Marshall embodied the spirit of wilderness. He fought for the preservation of millions of acres of American forestland; he explored and wrote about the Alaskan frontier, and he organized the Wilderness Society. His passion for wilderness was nurtured in the Adirondack Mountains, where he spent his boyhood summers. He and his brother, George, and their guide, Herb Clark, were the first to climb all the Adirondack peaks over four thousand feet. This book gathers nearly forty of Marshalls writings about the Adirondacks. They include numerous accounts of his pioneering hikes in the High Peaks and of his explorations in the vast wild region south of Cranberry Lake, spirited defenses of the forever-wild Forest Preserve, a charming sketch of Herb Clark, a tribute to the nineteenth-century surveyor Mills Blake, and excerpts from an unpublished novel set partly in the Adirondacks.These articles are an important part of Adirondack history. They not only illuminate Marshalls life and thought, but they also reveal his deeply personal connection to the Adirondacks. Readers who know Marshall solely by his national reputation will discover what inspired him to become one of the countrys strongest voices for wilderness preservation. Adirondack aficionados will delight in reading about Marshalls experience of places they know and love. The anthology also contains three articles by George Marshall, including a heartfelt portrait of his brother, Adirondacks to Alaska, as well as pieces by historian Philip G. Terrie, legendary conservationist Paul Schaefer and Adirondack Explorer Editor Phil Brown and a humorous ode to peak-bagging by Bill McKibben.It is richly illustrated by more than sixty photographs, many taken by Marshall himself, and a dozen maps."Article| Robert Marshall| Statement ..."
