In Adirondack Camps, Craig Gilborn, who served as director of the Adirondack Museum (now Adirondack Experience) for 20 years, provides the most extensive and up-to-date social and architectural history of camps in the Adirondacks--from the primitive bark shanties and cabins of trappers and loggers to the celebrated great camps, where the rich played at roughing it with servants and guides.
Enhanced with more than 325 illustrations, including floor plans and architectural drawings, Adirondack Camps is not only a beautiful coffee table book, but also a valuable reference packed with in-depth research from an expert on the subject.
Gilborn lives in Long Lake with his wife, Alice.
