Freedom in the Wilds by Harold Weston

Book Description

Harold Weston's captivating account of his intimate relationship with the wilderness, "Freedom in the Wilds" combines an informal history of the Adirondack Mountain Reserve with his own experiences there as a painter and woodsman. He incorporates stories gathered over many years from the region's guides and lumbermen and the wealthy visionaries seeking to preserve the wilderness.First published in 1971, "Freedom in the Wilds" became a classic among Adirondack literature for its thoughtful exploration of wilderness and creativity. In this third edition, Rebecca Foster updates the original by bringing to the foreground Weston's compelling personal story. She also adds a rich trove of Weston's letters and Journal entries, along with new illustrations, explanatory notes, and a new introduction that will give Weston's story greater resonance with contemporary readers.
