Actively Adirondack: Reflections on Mountain Life in the 21st Century is a collection of anecdotal essays and poems by writer, teacher, and former copy editor for the Adirondack Daily Enterprise, Randy Lewis. These musings tell of Lewis's experiences and observations of Adirondack day-to-day life and lifestyle after her arrival in Paul Smiths in 1970. While she may not be a native to the area, her collection of writings help explain what it is that draws people to the area and keeps them here.
"As we read Randy's words, we realize why Adirondackers are independent, creative, resilient people and why so many, despite a lack of economic opportunity, choose to live here year-round." -Peggy Lynn, singer/songwriter, and co-author of Breaking Trail: Remarkable Women of the Adirondacks
