In the North Country, ice is never far away. But in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it was absolutely essential to the region’s culture and economy. In this comprehensive, 360-page history, North Country author Caperton Tissot looks at sports, art, travel, politics and other spheres revolving around ice--in the era before refrigeration, thousands of tons of Adirondack ice were sold every year.
