Man of the Woods
By Herbert F. Keith

Herbert F. Keith lives between two worlds and is at home in both. His is the last mown lawn at the edge of the village. South of the iron stakes that mark his property line are twenty-one air miles of unbroken Adirondack forest preserve, all the way past the headwaters of the Oswegatchie and the Beaver Stillwater to Big Moose.
His book tells the story, in words and forty-two cherished photographs, of the unique community of Wanakena, a lumber camp that grew into a village and a village that can no longer grow because of the surrounding forest preserve; of the guides of the Oswegatchie River, Wilfred Morrison in particular; of the great green forest that has survived logging, fire, blowdown, and the use and abuse of sportsmen.

"Man of the Woods... Is without question one of the most delightful sources of Adirondack lore available today."

-- The Conservationist magazine

This memoir joins the company of those few, top-quality books about life in the woods that are exceedingly readable. You need not know anything about this part of the Park, have hiked or paddled in the region or even driven to the community to enjoy such a fine read. There is something in here for every area of historical interest.
