O’Hern’s new book Adirondack Camp Stories: A Treasury of True Tales, Lore, History, Recreation, and Colorful Characters of the Mountains (North Country Books, 2017) is a storybook with archival photos that connect readers with early Adirondack camps — from the simplest backwoods shelters, to boarding houses and hotels that offered more comfortable amenities.

Adirondack Camp Stories features hundreds of historic photo throughout its 360 pages. The 6×9 soft cover is available in local and regional bookstores, at the author’s website and by calling North Country Books at 1-800-342-7409.
