Wit and Wisdom from Adirondack Lean-to Journals. ‘If you like hiking in the Adirondacks it won’t be long before you come across a lean-to placed in some scenic spot to provide shelter for the passing hiker. If you take a look inside you re likely to find a journal – known locally as a register – stored in a plastic baggie. If you take it out and start to read you probably won’t be going anywhere for a while.’
This book is made up of the interesting things people write in lean-to registers. The entries are by turns inspirational, hilarious, pathetic, and downright crazy, to name just a few moods. They provide insight into the minds and motives of people who for diverse reasons have chosen through physical hardship to reach places of solitude, beauty, and sometimes misery and danger.
