One of the most spectacular engineering projects in New York State's history was the creation of the Great Sacandaga Lake in 1930. The swift, indelible change to the geography of this southern Adirondack region is the spark that ignited the imagination of author Russell Dunn. His second home is on the Sacandaga at Diamond Point, where he is inspired to write of life on the lake and its unique past. History and imagination are just part of the book, though, as he and his wife, Barbara, share their adventures hiking, canoeing, parachuting, skyaking, caving, white-water tubing, and scuba diving. His essays are creative, informative, and funny; they will inspire you to visit the Great Sacandaga Lake and experience it all yourself. Russell Dunn is a New York State licensed hiking guide who has written five regional guidebooks on waterfalls: The Adirondack Waterfall Guide: New York's Cool Cascades (Black Dome Press, 2003); Catskill Region Waterfall Guide: Cool Cascades of the Catskills & Shawangunks (Black Dome Press, 2004); Hudson Valley Waterfall Guide: From Saratoga and the Capital Region to the Highlands and Palisades (Black Dome Press, 2005); Mohawk Region Waterfall Guide: From the Capital District to Cooperstown & Syracuse (Black Dome Press, 2007); and Berkshire Waterfall Guide: Cool Cascades of the Berkshire & Taconic Mountains (Black Dome Press, 2008). Dunn has co-authored two history-oriented hiking books with his wife, Barbara Delaney: Trails with Tales: History Hikes through the Capital Region, Saratoga, Berkshires, Catskills, and Hudson Valley (Black Dome Press, 2006) and Adirondack Trails with Tales: History Hikes through the Adirondack Park and the Lake George, Lake Champlain & Mohawk Valley Regions (Black Dome Press, 2009). He has also written two kayaking guidebooks and numerous magazine articles.
