Eighty-seven true tales of adventures and misadventures in New York State's Adirondack Park written by more than seventy-five mountaineers, including some of the most experienced backpackers in the Northeast, many of them members of the Adirondack Forty-Sixers and the Adirondack Mountain Club. Included are unforgettable climbs in extreme weather, mistakes made and hardships endured, encounters with black bears and other wildlife, accidents and injuries, getting lost in the wilderness, rescues, inspirations and enchantments--memorable adventures that present the dangers, challenges and joys of all-season hiking and backpacking in the Adirondack Mountains. With photos and map, and background on the geology, forest ecology, and climate of the Adirondacks, plus the histories and programs of the Adirondack Mountain Club and the Adirondack Forty-Sixers (whose members must summit all 46 Adirondack peaks above 4,000 feet elevation).
