Adirondack Explorations: Nature Writings of Verplanck Colvin

Adirondack Explorations:
Nature Writings of Verplanck Colvin

by Paul Schaefer

Verplanck Colvin worked twenty-eight years as the superintendent of the Topographical Survey of the Adirondack Mountains, one of the last great frontiers of the East. This collection of essays reveals Colvin's perspectives on the Adirondacks. His writings reflect on outdoorsman's appreciation of the wilderness, with a poet's unerring sense for its beauty. As an early advocate for the preservation of the Adirondacks, he became a force behind passage of the Forever Wild statute of 1885 and the the establishment of the Park itself in 1892
