An Adirondak Passage
Christine Jerome, An Adirondack Passage: The Cruise of the Canoe Sairy Gampt (Halcottsville, New York: Breakaway Books, 2013
George Washington Sears wrote under the pen name Nessmuk for various sports magazines at the end of the 19th century. His 1883 journey in a tiny canoe through the Adirondack lakes and streams was published as a set of letters and later published as a book, “Canoeing the Adirondacks with Nessmuk.” Christine Jerome set out more than a century later. She also used an ultralight canoe, though hers was made of modern materials. She also wrote masterfully of the trip. The result is a delightful adventure for all who love canoes and camping.
The book is a wonderful delight. Jerome’s descriptions are delightful and their experiences have enough challenge and adventure to keep the reader engaged.
This is a book worth reading and then keeping to read again.
