9780815607014: Rooted in Rock: New Adirondack (Park) Writing, 1975 - 2000 (Anthology)

Contemporary essays, literary nonfiction, poetry, short fiction, and excerpted fiction complete this anthology-the first since Paul Jamieson's Adirondack Reoder in more than twenty years-a sampling of some of the most exciting writers of the Adirondack Mountains. In the past twenty years the Adirondacks have inspired a resident population of writers and has gained regional and national prominence using the Adirondacks as their primary setting and subject matter or at least a significant point of departure. This anthology includes a mix of new and previously published works by forty-three established and emerging writers including Bill McKibben, Sue Halpern, Russell Banks, Alex Schoumatoff, Chase Twichell, Curt Stager, Amy Godine, Jim Gould, to name a few.

About the Author:

Jim Gould is professor of writing and literature in the environmental studies program at Paul Smith's, The College of the Adirondacks. His work has appeared in the New York Times, New York Magazine, Outside, and The Washington Post.

From Library Journal:

In recent years, a group of resident writers has gained regional and national attention using the Adirondacks as setting or subject. This anthology collects the work of 43 of these new and emerging writers, including both original and previously published pieces of literary nonfiction, poetry, and short fiction. The result is a lively portrait of the region. Gould, a professor of writing and literature in the environmental studies program at Paul Smith's, the College of the Adirondacks, describes how a community discusses, with maturity and civility, the idea of reintroducing wolves to the area. Poet Maurice Kenny celebrates the beauty of "green pristine only a miracle could devise," while James Howard Kunstler interviews a New Jersey hot-dog millionaire who wants to buy and develop the whole Adirondack area. Further, John Quenell gives tongue-in-cheek instructions for competing in "how cold was it last night" conversations. Given the current interest in regional and environmental writing and the variety and quality of the pieces included here, this collection is recommended for public and academic libraries. Nancy P.
