Since moving to the mountains in 1976, I have worked at the Adirondack Museum as education coordinator; run a general store; helped stranded travelers during the 1980 Winter Olympics; directed a community arts center; and edited Adirondack Life magazine. In 1992 I wrote the first edition of the Adirondack Book, nearly 500 pages covering everything from where to eat to how to hire a fishing guide. In 1997 Amy Godine and I wrote Adirondack Odysseys, a guide to historic sites in the North Country, which ties museums, forts, battlefields, and other sites together chronologically.
