Product Description

Nestled in the mountains of northern New York are thousands of acres of the most wild and romantic natural scenery. This area, once known as the "Shatagee Woods," includes the area encompassing beautiful Chateaugay Lake, Bradley Pond, Mountain Pond, Ragged Lake, Indian Lake, Lake Meacham and Saranac Lake. Through the years, the land has been commercialized from this once unbroken paradise, and much of its original beauty is locked away in the pages' history.

Author Samuel H. Hammond, Albany attorney and editor of the Albany State Register, visited this area in the mid 1800's when it was first being discovered. For several weeks he and his guide traversed hundreds of miles through the woods, over hills, along the forest streams and floating on many beautiful lakes.

"During that time no face of a white man, save that of my guide, or perhaps my own, reflected back from the quiet depths of those pure waters that nestle so quietly among the ancient forests and the hills."

Today the reader can visit this natural paradise through the eyes of this avid sportsman of long-ago. Hunting Adventures in the Northern Wilds is the personal journal of the hunting experiences of Hammond and his guide Joe Tucker in the unbroken paradise of the Adirondack Mountains.
