About the Author


Moriah and Port Henry in the Adirondacks shares many never before published postcards and photographs from the Town of Moriah Historical Society and private collections. Authors Frank Edgerton Martin and Jacqueline A. Viestenz worked with local historians and retired iron miners to interpret this wealth of images. Collected in nine chapters, they tell unforgettable stories of life in a sometimes harsh yet beautiful northern land.
