Inhaltsangabe: This guidebook, packed with pictures and maps, will lead you on a quest. Be the first (besides the author) to bag the highest point of each county of New York Statethere are 62 to be conquered. Some are barely molehills that can be driven by; others are significant mountain peaks that require an all-day climb. All promise the exhilaration of new discoveries. Can you name the highest point of the county where you live? Chances are good that you'll be wrong. As Gary Fallesen researched the summits he repeatedly came across experts who steered him wrong. Local belief often differs from factual reality. In this book you'll learn not only where the real Peak Experiences are, but how to get there. Fallesen delved into the history of each high point as well. With his guidance you'll meet the people populating the high points today and at the peaks in history.
About the Author: Gary Fallesen lives on the shore of Lake Ontario in suburban Rochester, N.Y., at an elevation of 250 feet, which means when he climbs mountains such as 19,340-foot Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa, or 14,494-foot Whitney in California, he is starting from nearly ground zero. A life-long outdoor enthusiast, he took up climbing on Mount Rainier in Washington in 1996, the same year he became the Outdoor writer at the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle newspaper.
The older of Mary Lou and Karl David Fallesen's two boys, Fallesen began with the Democrat and Chronicle in 1979 while a junior at St. John Fisher College in Pittsford, N.Y. He has won numerous local, state and national awards over two decades as a high school writer, a college writer, a columnist and the Outdoor writer. His writing has also appeared in various national publications.
His newspaper story on Sue and Rich Freeman's 1996 breakaway-from-the-workaday-world thru-hike of the 2,200-mile Appalachian Trail introduced him to the couple that would be his publishers.
He is a member of several outdoor organizations, including the American Alpine Club and Adirondack Mountain Club, and has been recognized in six different Who's Who titles, Who's Who in America 2000 among them.
Fallesen, who graduated from Greece Arcadia High School in 1977, married Elaine Busse in 1982. They have two childrenJesse Dane, who was born in 1989, and Hayley Hope, born in 1994. When he isn't outdoors, Fallesen usually can be found singing or directing drama at his church, Hope Lutheran, in Greece, N.Y.
