Keene, NY—From its wilderness source to its meeting with the Ausable River, Styles Brook is scarcely five miles long, yet within its scenic, rugged watershed, award-winning author Lorraine Duvall has discovered a lifetime of stories that characterize the Adirondack condition.
In Where the Styles Brook Waters Flow: The Place I Call Home, Duvall writes of coming to know and love the Styles Brook Valley, and describes the delicate balance of privacy and interconnectivity that is the way of life in rural areas. In this book, her latest contribution to Adirondack lore, she continues to illustrate the area’s vibrant and fascinating life.
Styles Brook is a small but consequential valley where both people and nature have found a sense of place. It is home to The Glen, a collection of sweeping, mountain-encircled plains where farmers worked the soil, and also to a gateway of the wildlife corridor known as the Split Rock Wildway in the eastern Adirondack Mountains, a safe haven for migrating creatures.
