Description - Ladies of the Lake by Kathleen Bagley

Ladies of the Lake is a collection of twenty-three interviews and 120 accompanying photographs of the women at home in their unusual camps and surrounding environments. Ladies like eighty-two-year-old Helen Murray, who converted her camp to a popular club after World War II with zany style and grace: the eccentric yet practical artist Margo Fish. who hand-built the charming and enchanting Tapawingo compound out of intricate twig and stone; and scratch-golfer and financial-expert Sue Riggins, who lost her one true love but managed to hang on to her camp. All are united by the lake's remarkable hold on them. This book is for anyone who visits or appreciates Lake Placid and the Adirondack area and has an interest in the region's rich culture and history. But it is also written for women and men who spend time on the water anywhere, for lovers of the changing seasons, for armchair enthusiasts who have never visited the area, and for anyone who wonders or delights in the serendipitous and inspiring lives of women everywhere.
