Inhaltsangabe: After his friends Harvey Dunham and Mortimer Norton passed away, Lloyd Blankman dreamed of organizing his newspaper and magazine articles, along with articles by his friends, into a book. Sadly, Lloyd died before getting very far into the project. Author William J. O?Hern has resurrected Blankman?s vision, by joining his original writing with the enduring works of Blankman and his contemporaries in Adirondack Characters and Campfire Yarns, a mosaic history of the lives and traditions of the settlers of the Southern Adirondacks. Venture into the wilderness with French Louie and Alvah Dunning and learn about lesser known characters such as Old Lobb of Piseco Lake and Moose River Plains guide Slim Murdock. Travel the trapline with Richard Woods, E. J. Dailey and Burt Conklin, "the greatest trapper." Explore the turbulent waters of the West Canada Creek in search of trout, learn about the tools of the spruce gum trade, and find out why "the liars club" of Forestport called their get-togethers "parting with the dog." Adirondack Characters and Campfire Yarns not only fulfills Blankman?s dream, it fills a void in the recorded history of a seldom written-about region and the people who settled it. Over 80 vintage photographs!
Über den Autor: William J. O?Hern, or Jay, as he is known to his friends, has enjoyed the Adirondacks for as long as he can remember. Early in life he enjoyed summers at his grandparents? cabin and camping trips with his family. As a young man he explored the wilderness on extended backpacking adventures to historic locations and mountain summits. Along the way he became a "Forty-Sixer." Later in life Jay took up his pen to further explore the region he loved so much. Adirondack Characters and Campfire Yarns is Jay?s third book about the Adirondack mountains, their rich history, and the people who made them their home.
