Adirondack High by Joanne Michaels

Book Description

Created in 1892 as patchwork of private and public lands with neither an entrance gate nor an admission fee, Adirondack Park is not only celebrated as America's First Wilderness, it is also truly the first people's parka vast region where nature and culture coexist. Adirondack High illuminates this relationship with its striking photography and lithe, thoughtful text. With a masterful use of light and texture, Hardie Truesdale, a renowned nature photographer for more than 30 years, captures the sublimity of the Adirondacks in some of its most compelling vistas. Truesdale works as a painter would, carefully seeking out each scene with his 50 pounds of large-format camera equipment. Veteran travel writer Joanne Michaels adds further resonance to Truesdale's images with word. The result is a book that captures the true spirit of the Adirondacks.
