Paying tribute to one of America's natural treasures, The Adirondacks: Season by Season from Penguin is a book filled with beautiful panoramic photos of Adirondack Park's majestic mountains, pristine woods, and picturesque waterways. First-rate photography by Carl Heilman II and a foreword written by Bill McKibben make this book a must-have for nature lovers.
Encompassing more ground than Yellowstone, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon combined, Adirondack Park is one of the greatest wilderness regions in the United States--making it the perfect subject for a book of season-by-season photography. This volume offers an all-new selection of images showing how the landscape changes with the seasons; the stunning photos include verdant springtime meadows, sun-kissed summer vistas, tree-covered mountains in beautiful Autumn colors, and rivers hushed by winter snow. Additionally, you'll find pictures of wildlife such as bears and moose, as well as historic resorts and villages. Each chapter focuses on a different area of the park, from Lake Placid and the High Peaks to Saranac Lake, Lake George, and the Fulton Chain.
