Under An Adirondack Influence
The Life of A. L. Byron-Curtiss - 1871-1959
by William J. O'Hern and Roy E. Reehil

Under An Adirondack InfluenceAn intriguing account that is hard to put down as the complex character of A. L. Byron-Curtiss unfolds. Through many facets and contradictions, Byron-Curtiss reveals himself through his writings: a Reverend with an independent sense of justice, a story-teller with an endearing sense of humor, a brilliant writer with a sharp pen, and a lover of the Adirondacks who spent years exploring, fishing and hunting in the wilderness. He was as comfortable with lumberjacks and guides as he was among Bishops and businessmen. His sense of humor and personal flaws make him a sympathetic personality grappling with life during world war, prohibition and the Great Depression. If you love Adirondack folklore, you'll love this book.
