Adirondack Ventures explores the early man-made features that were introduced into New York State's great mountain and lake region. With some 200 rare photographs, this book recounts the memories of those who took part in the development of the Adirondacks, an area that covers one quarter of the state. To open up these millions of acres, pathways and roadways and, later, small airports and railways were constructed. To enhance the use and enjoyment of the wilderness, bikeways and ski slopes, as well as amusement parks and golf courses, were built.

Adirondack Ventures reflects a part of history that is being lost to time. Donald R. Williams has captured these man-made additions before they disappear from sight and memory. A well-known educator, lecturer, columnist, and author, he has written seven other books on the Adirondacks, among them The Adirondacks: 1830–1930, The Adirondacks: 1931–1990, and Along the Adirondack Trail.
