Inhaltsangabe: Mary MacKenzie's sweeping history begins with the hardy farmers from New England who first settled North Elba in 1800. Some of them became hoteliers as tourists discovered the enchanting scenery. Free African Americans settled here, too, and the famous abolitionist, John Brown. These were self-reliant Adirondackers, people of courage and conviction. But Lake Placid's story also includes dashing actors and producers from the silent movie studios who found the rugged scenery perfect for their rousing epics. Sports heroes careened down the bob-run and ski slopes where members of the Lake Placid Club virtually invented winter sports in America, culminating in two Winter Olympics! And MacKenzie includes stories of local heroes, North Elbans of disctinction, all told in her delightful style: precise, confident, and with a touch of Garrison Keillor's sense of small town humor.
Über den Autor: Many interested in Adirondack history know of the writings of Mary MacKenzie, historian for the Town of North Elba since 1964. Over the years, they have read her historical essays in Adirondack Life magazine, the Conservationist, local newspapers and newsletters, and a fortunate few may have caught some of her lectures. Historians wondered if MacKenzie would ever collect all of her work into one place, finally creating a comprehensive history of North Elba and Lake Placid. She never did. After she passed away in 2003, her family asked Lee Manchester to execute her literary estate, resulting in The Plains of Abraham.
