Adirondack Vernacular

by Robert Bogdan, Adirondack Vernacular Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Adirondack Vernacular books, Henry M. Beach was a prolific and accomplished upstate New York photographer who documented the North Country during the first quarter of the twentieth century. Although much less known and celebrated, Beach's work is as important to the twentieth-century Adirondacks as Seneca Ray Stoddard's is to the nineteenth century. Illustrated with over 250 examples of his work including ten panoramic foldouts, this book covers the range of Beach's subject matter. Robert Bogdan's lively and accessible approach to the photographer's work encourages the reader to explore the North Country's people and places through Beach's photography and life. Although Beach's postcard pictures and other photographs were taken to sell in bulk to hotel managers, tourist shop owners, and other retail merchants, they are not just mass-produced, stylized, pretty pictures. Beside the bubbling brooks and shady woodland paths are factory boomtowns and paper mills belching pollution. As the rails brought increasing numbers of middle-class tourists to the Adirondacks, the wealthy created their own exclusive wilderness playground. Beach photographed dandy visitors at play as well as manual laborers sweating in the forest, logging camps, factories, mines, and construction sites. Images of "great camps" sit next to modest abodes, small stores, and family-owned resorts. Pictures of trains in scenic surroundings give way to mangled wrecks after tragic railroad accidents. In addition to standard view cards, he produced montages and advertisement postcardsserious visual commentary as well as lighthearted picture play. Beach's best works stir the heart and provoke the imagination, and his whimsical, down-to-earth approach to photography produced images that are a treat to the eye.

Adirondack Lakes

by Thomas A. Gates, Adirondack Lakes Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Adirondack Lakes books, The lakes of the Adirondack region are explored in this superb collection of masterful images, most of which are previously unpublished. The photographs in Adirondack Lakes were taken by well-known and lesser-known photographers of the region, including Seneca Ray Stoddard, George W. Baldwin, H. T. Hull, Katherine E. McClellan, William Kollecker, William L. Distin, and Henry M. Beach. Dating from 1858 to 1948, they are clear, focused, visually engaging, and historically significant. They show the men and women who developed the Adirondacks, from monied entrepreneurs to manual laborers, from hoteliers to roadside attendants, from vacationers to year-round residents-a cast of characters reflecting nearly a century of Adirondack activity.

Southern Adirondack Foothills Fishing Hunting And Trapping

by Megan Plete Postol, Southern Adirondack Foothills Fishing Hunting And Trapping Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Southern Adirondack Foothills Fishing Hunting And Trapping books, The rugged wild of the Adirondacks region of New York State has been a haven for sportsmen for hundreds of years. Hunters, fishermen, and trappers have found freedom and solitude in its crisp mountain air and vast expanses of wilderness. The challenge and adventure of the pursuit of wild game in this rough country has established the Adirondacks as a well-known destination for sportsmen. The area is as stunning as it is unforgiving. Winter ice fishermen and hare hunters face brutal subzero temperatures and strong winds. Spring trout fishermen and turkey hunters are greeted by burbling brooks and thawing meadows emerging from beneath months of snow and ice. Autumn whitetail hunters and fur trappers trudge long distances through cooling, colorful, country forest groves and muddy riverbanks. Southern Adirondack Foothills Fishing, Hunting, and Trapping chronicles a less-often explored portion of the Adirondack's history: the non-famous mountain folk who etched out a life of their own design among the pines and ponds of the magnificent southern Adirondack foothills region.
