Saranac Lake's Pine Ridge Cemetery sprawls over a sandy hillside in the heart of the village. In it lie the last remains of the village's first settlers, along with hundreds of others, some well known, some not, who followed them across the great divide. Join Mountain Lake PBS and Curiously Adirondack in a ramble through the cemetery with the best of all possible guides: Natalie Leduc, one of the village's grand dames, a former Winter Carnival queen who looks after the cemetery and, when her rich and adventurous life is done, aims to be buried there someday.
Check out author Ed Kanze's latest book Adirondack: Life and Wildlife in the Wild, Wild East. The Wall Street Journal says, “Mr. Kanze’s way of circling back on himself, wondering if he is crazy to try to live in this place in this way, is oddly reassuring … We root for the Kanzes when freezing trees crack like rifle shots all night long, when hard frosts in July and August turn their carefully tended tomato plants to sad mush. We wonder how and why they do it, even as we wonder why we do what we do and live where we live. And we are comforted, knowing such brave and capable people wonder too.” Learn more by clicking here.
