Overview

Cited in Adirondack Life as one of the twenty-five most collectible books about the Adirondacks ever to appear, these essays were first published in book form in 1878. Warner's main theme is the small, often-ludicrous figure that the human being cuts in the wilderness. His urbane satire takes the starch out of 'the tin-can and paper-collar tourists' who were beginning to flock to the Adirondacks. Warner's love of nature, combined with his humor and social satire, makes this book as good a read now as it was more than a century ago.
