♥ Book Title : Angels in the Wilderness
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book is a first-person account of a disaster on a solo hiking trip. Author Amy Racina was hiking in a remote part of King's Canyon National Park in California's Sierra mountains when she lost the trail. With no warning, she suddenly fell sixty feet, breaking both legs on the rocks below. She survived for four days and nights, battling pain, fear and exhaustion, pulling herself along with her hands and refusing to give up. She was miraculously saved, her calls heard by a man who was partially deaf. It describes her dramatic rescue as she was airlifted out, swinging helplessly from two straps, dangling fearfully beneath a helicopter high above the ravine where she had fallen.It is an amazing tale of despair and courage and hope. It speaks of incredible strength and heartbreaking weakness as it details what one woman believed might be the last days of her life. It is a memory of the darkest of times and an affirmation of miracles."Article| Amy Racina| 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a charming sketch of Herb Clark, a tribute to the nineteenth-century surveyor Mills Blake, and excerpts from an unpublished novel set partly in the Adirondacks.These articles are an important part of Adirondack history.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, George (CON) Marshall| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Lonesome
☯ Full Synopsis : "Named for her first home, remote Lonesome Lake in British Columbia's Tweedsmuir Park, Lonesome was a first-rate companion: obedient, mannerly, brave, and occasionally cynical. She did not share her human's love of the wilderness, and wore a martyred expression for most of her life. She would have much preferred a life in the suburbs, "with nice safe walks in the park and a cozy bed inside the house." "Any dog worth her milk bones," Lonesome writes, "must accept her lot in life-fording rivers, swimming lakes, camping out in bitter weather and, worst of all, bears. Yes, bears. It's a wonder I am still around to tell this tale." Lonesome's memoirs paint a vivid picture of her life with Chris, but "I am not a vindictive creature and this book will remain family reading." She focuses on events not already recounted in Chris's books and, as she loftily points out in her introduction, on sharing her unique dog's perspective on their day-to-day life in the wilds."Article| Chris Czajkowski| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : An Adirondack Passage
☯ Full Synopsis : "A paddling classic back in print with new maps, photos, details, and afterword. Christine Jerome walked into the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, NY, and promptly fell in love with a 9-foot, 10½-pound canoe named the Sairy Gamp. More than a century before, in 1883, the Sairy Gamp had been paddled and portaged through the Adirondacks by a sixty-one-year-old writer named George Washington Sears (his pen name was Nessmuk). The more Jerome learned about Sears, the more she wanted to follow his route, despite her lack of camping or canoeing experience. In August 1990 she embarked in a 9-foot canoe made of Kevlar and, with her husband, John, accompanying her in a slightly larger boat, set off to retrace Sears’s journey. An Adirondack Passage is part social history, part natural history, part biography of Sears, and part chronicle of a voyage. Summer turns to fall while the Jeromes make their way north, through sunshine and storms, down cottage-lined lakes and lonely wild streams. Gusting winds bully their light canoes and by mid-September the days are colder and shorter; but the longer they paddle, the more attached they become to the beauty around them. Canada geese fly overhead, monarch butterflies flutter southward, and on the larger lakes, young loons gather for their first migration to the sea. Along the way the author pauses to tell us what Sears saw when he passed by, and what happened to his favorite haunts in the ensuing century. As the history of the region unfolds we meet hermits and millionaires, hunting guides and society women, hotelkeepers and dime-novel writers, and one lost dancing bear. Christine Jerome has given us a memorable wilderness experience that readers who have never lifted a paddle will find fascinating and invigorating. This new release from Breakaway Books is the third edition, revised and updated with extra photos, maps, and a new afterword. PRAISE FOR AN ADIRONDACK PASSAGE “A fine piece of work and a great delight. ” —John McPhee “An enchanting record of a canoe trip.” —The New Yorker “A writer of fine and watertight prose. . . . An Adirondack Passage is uncategorizable—at once history, naturalism, sociology, and a love story—but unfailingly graceful.” —Boston Globe “Personal, witty, and thoughtful—one of the best introductions to the area ever produced.” —Audubon “As refreshing a break from the busyness of life as I’ve come across in awhile.” —Newsday “The writing . . . is a constant pleasure. Jerome has a style that suits her subject, quiet and gentle as a paddle in still water. She delivers her lore with wit and whimsy, with fine descriptions and without shrill preaching or righteous posturing.” —Smithsonian “The closest thing to a national nonfiction best-seller that the region has seen in ages, and deservedly so.” —Adirondack Life “A captivating account. . . . She takes us into a world of hermits and millionaires, of wild streams and glorious mountain scenery.” —Publishers Weekly “A delightful tale. . . . An informative, readable adventure whose history and environmental lessons are taught well.” —Library Journal"Article| Christine Jerome| Statement ..."
♥ 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| | Statement ..."
