There is no other book out there like Adirondack & North Country Gold. Within these pages are 51 original stories about remarkable people, places, and events from the Adirondacks and foothills. Included are four anchor chapters that together are large enough to fill a volume: the life stories of Garrett Cashman, Michael Donovan, Harry Elkes, and Eben Rexford.

Though they may be unfamiliar names, their accomplishments are legend. Cashman was history's second cluster balloonist who, in the 1950s, captured the imagination of the entire nation. Donovan was a world-champion athlete whose achievements rank among the rarest in sports. Elkes was a beloved world-champion cyclist with a brilliant and tragic career. And the modest and unassuming Rexford wrote one of the most enduring songs in American history, a best-seller for more than half a century.

There's so much more among the other 47 stories. You'll find humor (The Great Canine Court Caper); inspiration (the Dean Van Clute story); romance (Love So Strong, It's Criminal); mystery (New York's Legendary Vanishing Judge); and the offbeat (Alligators in the Adirondacks, and Rock Eaters? No Way ... But Anything Else Will Do!).

There's plenty of pure history, too, in Lincoln's Avengers: The North Country Men Who Hunted Down John Wilkes Booth, and Jehudi Ashmun: Founder of Liberia.

You'll find quantity as well as quality—Adirondack & North Country Gold has more than twice the content of the average Adirondack book. It's filled with remarkable stories that will amuse, amaze, entertain, and educate.
