The Hudson River begins its mighty journey in the Adirondacks, a region as well known for its distinctive “Great Camps” architecture as for its pristine lakes and stunning mountain views. If you’re a fan of the Adirondack style, or just want an excuse for some fabulous road trips, Janet Null’s impressively detailed guide will prove an excellent travel companion. Studded with route maps for 14 different tours and photos of some 700 structures ranging from hand-built shiplap cabins to architect-designed lodges on the National Historic Register, the guide also offers a pocket history of the region and the evolution of its aesthetic.
