The author documents in detail how he planned and climbed the peaks, starting with his older son, then with his younger son. They experienced the thrill of penetrating the largest tract of wilderness left in the northeastern U.S., along with the risks - 22 trailless peaks, danger from hypothermia and Beaver Fever, blinding storms, voracious black flies, etc. Just as important, the author links in a literary and historical sense the romanticism of the Adirondacks past with clinical reports coming out of the Adirondacks present. The result is a paean of joy and adventure, conjuring up, as he notes in the foreword, the exploits of Lewis and Clark, Francis Parkman, Richard Halliburton, Amelia Earhart, Sir Edmund Hillary, and Tenzig Norgay... whoever fires your imagination.
