A non-fiction account from one of the most noted Adirondack guides of the late 19th Century. Originally published is 1920, Sears colorfully describes skills and tools he found essential while spending most of his life out of doors. His recollections provide insight to what the environment and life was like in the Upstate New York wilderness around the turn of the last century. Original illustrations reproduced give the reader detail and an understanding of techniques described. I would recommend this book to secondary social science students studying New York and the Northeast. Additionally, this would be a great read for high school Earth Science students as Sears continually stresses the need for conservation and preservation of all natural resources.
