Library Journal Review

Schaefer, a conservationist and author of Defending the Wilderness (Syracuse Univ. Pr., 1989), was instrumental in the preservation of the Adirondacks as a park ``forever wild.'' This collection of essays, some dating back as far as the 1920s, largely concerns the mountain men, hunting trips, and wilderness that inspired Schaefer to work toward preserving the mountains. Some essays are very slight--mere anecdotes--and overall Schaefer lacks the transcendent vision and gift for language that characterizes the best nature writers. This book certainly belongs in comprehensive Adirondacks collections and might appeal to lovers of hunting yarns, but libraries needing a basic book about the region should look elsewhere.-- Beth Clewis, Prince William P.L., Va.
