One of the most spectacular engineering projects in New York State’s history was the creation of the Great Sacandaga Lake in 1930. The swift, indelible change to the geography of this southern Adirondack region is the spark that ignited the imagination of author Russell Dunn. His second home is on the Sacandaga at Diamond Point, where he is inspired to write of life on the lake and its unique past. History and imagination are just part of the book, though, as he and his wife, Barbara, share their adventures hiking, canoeing, parachuting, skyaking, caving, white-water tubing, and scuba diving. His essays are creative, informative, and funny; they will inspire you to visit the Great Sacandaga Lake and experience it all yourself.
