About this title

Synopsis:

In their deep sense of family and community, in their faith in themselves, these Adirondack women found the strength to endure and grow in a harsh but beautiful environment. Here are the domestic details, the intimate life of mountain women and their families...what it was like to attend and teach in a one-room, schoolhouse...why horses were better than cars...and how to get a whole chicken into a quart jar! ...plus 34 fascinating photographs!

Review:

"...a life of hard work that demanded true grit is captured in a quartet of engaging histories." -- Albany Times Union, 1995

"...so vivid and engaging that I really felt a part of the authors' lives." -- Elizabeth Folwell, Adirondack Life Magazine, 1995

"At book's end, readers will understand why these four women...grew up strong." -- Utica Observer Dispatch, 1995

"Their memories are rich and engrossing." -- Lake Placid News, 1995

Four North Country women present autobiographies of life in the Adirondacks, presenting a wide focus on the early 1900s to modern times and telling of one-room schoolhouses, winter survival, and regional adventures. This isn't an oral history in the usual sense: its a result of writing workshop get-togethers and contributions. -- Midwest Book Review
