Adirondack Life Magazine is celebrating its 50th anniversary all this year with some special issues, and a new book. It’s a compilation of Adirondack Life’s popular Our Towns columns that appeared for decades (1990-2014) on the back page of the magazine.

The book is packed with more than a hundred towns, villages, and hamlets throughout the 6-million-acre Adirondack Park. The many stories & histories of these communities are filled with quirky characters, colorful tales, and little known tidbits.

Senior Editor Niki Kourofsky joins us to talk about the new book.

Our Towns: Dispatches From Around the Adirondack Park is available at book stores throughout the Adirondacks, and online at Adirondack Life’s Store: www.adirondacklifestore.com
