Contested Terrain
A New History of Nature and People in the Adirondacks, Second Edition

Philip G. Terrie

Paper $22.95    |    978-0-8156-0904-9    |    2008

"The finest general Adirondack history yet written, the book to which all subsequent accounts will have to refer."
New York Review of Books

"A masterpiece of historical research, a benchmark publication in regional American environmental history."
Midwest Book Review

Contested Terrain explores the competing understandings of how best to manage this spectacular natural resource. Terrie introduces the key players and events that have shaped the region and its use, from early settlers and loggers to preservationists, year-round residents, and developers. This new edition includes a comprehensive account of the Pataki years, an era of stunning conservation triumphs combined with unprecedented pressures on the region’s ecological integrity.
