A stunning tribute to one of America’s natural treasures in panoramic photographs of the Adirondack Park’s grand mountains, pristine woods, and picturesque waterways.
 
Covering more ground than Yellowstone, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon combined, the Adirondack Park is one of the great wilderness areas in this country. This volume presents an all-new selection of images, with a focus on how the seasons transform the landscape: the tree-covered mountains in autumnal glory, rivers hushed by winter snow, verdant meadows alive with spring, wildlife such as bears and moose, as well as historic resorts and villages. Each chapter covers a different corner of the park, from Lake Placid and the High Peaks to Saranac Lake, Lake George, and the Fulton Chain. To appreciate the wonders of the Adirondacks through the lens of one of the area’s most accomplished photographers is like exploring them for the first time.

NATIONAL INTEREST: The Adirondacks are one of the natural treasures of the U.S., in league with Yosemite, Grand Canyon, and Yellowstone. The Adirondacks cover more ground than all of these combined, and it attracts skiers, campers, hikers, and vacationers from across the country. This book has great appeal beyond just the Northeast region.

TOURIST APPEAL: Millions of tourists come to the region during autumn to see the leaves, in the summer to escape the heat in the lakes, and in the winter to ski the slopes. Tourism is the single largest driver of the area’s economy, and there are numerous theater, film, and arts festivals and corporate, religious, and family retreats. Like those who visit New York City, Adirondack tourists tend to be a more urban, book-buying audience.

FULL SCOPE: The photos cover all of the Adirondacks, from the High Peaks to Lake George and Saranac Lake. The Park encompasses more than 5 million acres, and other Adirondack books tend to focus on just the most populated areas. The book is organized into chapters by region; since second-homers are fiercely proud of their individual regions, this should inspire them to buy so they can appraise their chapter of the book.

ALL VIEWPOINTS: Heilman’s images present the region in year-round splendor, giving readers an intrepid hiker’s access to distant peaks, deep woods and shadowy gorges in every season, from breathtaking panoramas to the closest of intimate nature shots. Also shown are evocative views of Adirondack civilization: the great “camps” (historic centuries-old resorts), ski slopes, canoe races, marathons, wildlife, and quaint villages.

Carl Heilman II has spent the last forty years hiking and photographing the Adirondack Mountains. His photographs have appeared in magazines such as Outside and National Parks.

Bill McKibben, one of America’s foremost environmentalists, is the author of numerous books.

Publishers Weekly, Spring 2017 Announcements

“I have never had the pleasure of visiting the Adirondacks in person, but after viewing the photographs in The Adirondacks: Season by Season I know that a trip there is in my future.”
Snug Harbor Bay 

"Rainbows stretch across Brant Lake, loons dance and glide over the water, a baby fawn nestled in the thickets, cairns along a trail, trees shrouded in mist, colorful leaves blanketing the earth, icicles along the shoreline, and my personal favorite - a shot of an Adirondack chair on a dock that faces crystal clear water stretching to the forest beyond.  I can picture myself sitting there at either sunrise or sunset. I have never had the pleasure of visiting the Adirondacks in person, but after viewing the photographs in The Adirondacks: Season by Season I know that a trip there is in my future.  In the meantime I will enjoy the book and try to decide which season and area to visit first.”
