Paul Jamison with Neal Burdick
Winner of the Adirondack Center for Writing's prestigious Best Memoir award. Veteran explorer Erik Schlimmer takes us into the far-flung nooks and crannies of the Adirondack Park, the largest park and forest preserve in the Lower Forty-Eight. Through the woods, over the hills, and across the rivers we go, learning what it's like to be out there with the bugs, the moose, the mud, and the nothingness. These ten non-fiction, firsthand stories range from camping with cops from New Jersey, to chasing bears while screaming obscenities at them, to eating apple pie naked in the woods.
