The story of how Adirondack forests lured investments from financial centers; how roads pushed deep into the wilderness; how tanneries were built in remote places and how towns sprang up around them; how hides were shipped to canal ports in Warrensburg or along the Erie Canal and how teamsters drove great distances to reach the tanneries. A largely forgotten history is brought to life in this well-researched book of an industry that disappeared in the 1890s.
