William Henry Harrison Murray ( Adirondack Murray ) is known as the father of the outdoor movement in America and the modern vacation. A passionate advocate for the wilderness and, specifically, the Adirondacks in New York State, Murray was the author of numerous books from the 1860s until his death in the early twentieth century. Many of his books and short stories focused on the Adirondacks and the importance of human interaction with nature. For the first time, The Best of the Adirondack Tales gathers his best and most beloved stories, drawn from many sources and selected by Murray’s biographer and great-great grandson, Randall S. Beach. Among the favorites included: The Freemasonry of Outdoor Life,
Jack Shooting in a Foggy Night,
The Story that the Keg Told Me,
Henry Herbert’s Thanksgiving, and How John Norton the Trapper Kept His Christmas.
