9781596295414: High Peaks: A History of Hiking the Adirondacks from Noah to Neoprene

The unique geological history of the Adirondacks can be found in a pebble. So discovers humorist and outdoorsman Tim Rowland as he chronicles the evolution of hiking in the howling wilderness of the High Peaks. From nineteenth-century guides’ “random scoots” to Melville Dewey’s “Adirondaks Loj” to today’s technologically enhanced weekenders, Rowland, who has climbed the forty-six himself, incorporates personal anecdotes and laugh-out-loud wit to capture the appeal and beauty of this beloved region, all the while reminding us of the importance of keeping these stunning mountains, and their attendant “neat rocks,” “Forever Wild.”

About the Author:

Tim Rowland is a humor columnist for The Herald-Mail in Hagerstown, Maryland. In the 1960s, he began visiting the Adirondacks, where his grandpa owned a camp on Third Lake in the Fulton Chain near Old Forge. He has climbed the 46 "High Peaks" in the Adirondacks and explored a number of lesser peaks and trails, developing an interest in the region's history along the way. Along with the Adirondacks he has climbed and trekked throughout the world, including Nepal, Bolivia, Norway, and the Italian Alps. He has also written on the history of the Civil War and the C&O canal in Western Maryland.
