Hardy Adirondack Mountain folk chant 1-2-3-4 as we prepare to stay warm during cold, snowy winters that can last half the year or more. It's all about firewood: felling it, sawing it to length, hauling it out of the woods, splitting it, moving it, stacking it, moving it again a time or two, and finally feeding it to hungry woodstoves. Yes, an unlucky few of us twirl thermostats, summon central heat, and hand over hard-earned cash to the oil and gas industry, but the rest of us maintain our trim figures, keep strong, and get free cardiovascular exercise as we work out at the most popular exercise club in the region.
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.
