Northern New York's Adirondack Park is a naturalist's wonderland of high peaks, plunging chasms, pristine waters, and stunning vistas. In this collection of columns from the popular series the Adirondack Almanack, author John Warren reveals another side of this charming land. Stories of bank robberies, the Ku Klux Klan, gambling, buried treasure, rattlesnakes, and earthquakes abound. Showing careful research and a panache for storytelling, Warren takes the mountain path less traveled, where locals and visitors alike will be surprised by the hidden gems of the Adirondacks.
