Adirondack Characters And Campfire Yarns Book Description:

Brief: Venture into the wilderness with French Louie and Alvah Dunning and learn about lesser known characters such as Old Lobb of Piseco Lake and Moose River Plains guide Slim Murdock. Travel the trapline with Richard Woods, E. J. Dailey and Burt Conklin, "the greatest trapper." Explore the turbulent waters of the West Canada Creek in search of trout, learn about the tools of the spruce gum trade, and find out why "the liars club" of Forestport called their get-togethers "parting with the dog." Adirondack Characters and Campfire Yarns fills a void in the recorded history of a seldom written-about region and the people who settled it.---- Back Cover Matter: After his friends Harvey Dunham and Mortimer Norton passed away, Lloyd Blankman dreamed of organizing his newspaper and magazine articles, along with articles by his friends, into a book. Sadly, Lloyd died before getting very far into the project. Author William J. OHern has resurrected Blankmans vision, by joining his original writing with the enduring works of Blankman and his contemporaries in Adirondack Characters and Campfire Yarns, a mosaic history of the lives and traditions of the settlers of the Southern Adirondacks. Venture into the wilderness with French Louie and Alvah Dunning and learn about lesser known characters such as Old Lobb of Piseco Lake and Moose River Plains guide Slim Murdock. Travel the trapline with Richard Woods, E. J. Dailey and Burt Conklin, the greatest trapper. Explore the turbulent waters of the West Canada Creek in search of trout, learn about the tools of the spruce gum trade, and find out why the liars club of Forestport called their get-togethers parting with the dog. Adirondack Characters and Campfire Yarns not only fulfills Blankmans dream, it fills a void in the recorded history of a seldom written-about region and the people who settled it. Over 80 vintage photographs! ---- Catalog Description: A superb treasury of Adirondack history, folklore, and legend. In his later years, Lloyd Blankman lectured about the beautiful mountains, forests, streams, and the people who became part of the enchanting landscape of the Southern Adirondacks. French Louie, the Blueberry Girls, "Red Jack," "Pants" Lawrence, Old Lobb, and the Conklin Clan are a few of the colorful characters who appear in these pages. Adirondack Characters and Campfire Yarns joins Blankman's enduring newspaper columns with William J. O'Hern's original writing to provide us an engaging glimpse of Adirondack pioneer life.
