Editorial Reviews

Review

As Barbara Delaney and Russell Dunn illuminate in their history hikes, the trails of the Adirondacks offer a treasure trove of fascinating stories. This is a rich narrative, full of historical nuggets, but still very much a lucid and useful guide for feet on the ground. They have done an outstanding job once again. --Fred LeBrun, Times Union columnist

Now, thanks to Russell Dunn and Barbara Delaney, visitors to the Adirondacks, guidebooks in hand, will be able explore its rich past as well as its unequalled scenery ... and ponder its future. The breadth and variety of the stories in this compilation distinguish Adirondack Trails with Tales from other trail guides. The authors provide the reader with much more than trail descriptions; they provide understanding and context. This wonderful book will better connect visitors and residents with very special places and help them learn from the land. --Joe Martens, President, Open Space Institute

By J. Bullard on October 1, 2012
Format: Paperback
This is an interesting book as I have visited many of the places listed in it. Among others the authors talk about Indian Pass, a place I visited just last Tuesday. In the book they relate a story of how Henry VanHoevenburg, who originally owned what is now the Adirondack Loj property on Heart Lake, once escaped a forest fire by going over Indian Pass with his horses. NO WAY! I've been to the pass three times and it would be impossible for a horse to traverse that pass. It is much too steep and you have to climb over boulders bigger than horses. Mr. VanHoevenburg might have gone through the neighboring Avalanche Pass with horses on the East side of the McIntyre range but the claim that it was Indian Pass can only be a tall tale, not history.

Despite that it is a well written guide and I recommend it for seeking out places to go adventuring. Just take the "history" with a grain of salt.
