Our Price: $24.95

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 climnb all the Adirondack peaks over four thousand feet.

This book gathers nearly forty of Marshall's writings about the Adirondacks. They include numerous accounts of his pioneering hikes in the High Peaks and 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a charming sketch of Herb Clark, a tribute to the nineteenth-century surveyor Mills Blake, and excerpts from an unpublished novel set partly in the Adirondacks.
