In The Adirondack Park McMartin has aptly likened the various wild forest, wilderness, recreation, and primitive areas to a patchwork quilt, with landscapes connecting to jagged boundaries following rivers and narrow valleys.
Recommended “views and visits” give readers an insider’s advantage to making the most of any Adirondack expedition. With a storyteller’s ease, McMartin provides a brief history and description of each area. She chronicles the preserve’s unusual origins, people, politics, and economics that created what is now one of the most important wilderness areas in the eastern United States.
