North Country Reflections

Book by Neal Burdick, North Country Reflections Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download North Country Reflections books, New York's North Country can be hard to define: the region has solid boundaries on three sides but not on the south, where it mingles with the Adirondack Mountains. The spare and isolated landscape experiences long and harsh winters tempered with bucolic scenery. Small-town life and farming--both traditional and innovative--have found a haven and even thrive. The region plays host to determined, community-oriented people who have traded the financial lure of big cities for the satisfaction of barn raisings, outdoor hockey, quiet hikes and old-fashioned diners. In this collection, residents of the region probe their own lives and experiences with the land in a corner of America that is both demanding and rewarding. Discover their exciting, uplifting and poignant tales.

Rural Indigenousness

Book by Melissa Otis, Rural Indigenousness Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Rural Indigenousness books, The Adirondacks have been an Indigenous homeland for millennia, and the presence of Native people in the region was obvious but not well documented by Europeans, who did not venture into the interior between the seventeenth and early nineteenth centuries. Yet, by the late nineteenth century, historians had scarcely any record of their long-lasting and vibrant existence in the area. With Rural Indigenousness, Otis shines a light on the rich history of Algonquian and Iroquoian people, offering the first comprehensive study of the relationship between Native Americans and the Adirondacks. While Otis focuses on the nineteenth century, she extends her analysis to periods before and after this era, revealing both the continuity and change that characterize the relationship over time. Otis argues that the landscape was much more than a mere hunting ground for Native residents; rather, it a "location of exchange," a space of interaction where the land was woven into the fabric of their lives as an essential source of refuge and survival. Drawing upon archival research, material culture, and oral histories, Otis examines the nature of Indigenous populations living in predominantly Euroamerican communities to identify the ways in which some maintained their distinct identity while also making selective adaptations exemplifying the concept of "survivance." In doing so, Rural Indigenousness develops a new conversation in the field of Native American studies that expands our understanding of urban and rural indigeneity.

Woodswoman Iiii

Book by Anne LaBastille, Woodswoman Iiii Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Woodswoman Iiii books, Anne LaBastille and her German shepherds experience more daring, death defying encounters in the wilderness, and with humans, than ever before. WOODSWOMAN IIII covers five years, rather than ten, since life has speeded up both at her log cabin and old farm. Anne juggles hard to achieve balance between making a living as a freelance writer and publisher, and as a cabin-dweller and contemplative. Her humorous descriptions of the miserly book factory show the complex demands on her time. These are contrapuntal to her exquisite images of Adirondack nature and wildlife and the harmony she finds therein. Despite fewer days at the cabin, each visitation holds greater intensity, more loveliness, interdependence and familiarity with her pets and wildlife. Her message to women everywhere is: Be Courageous, Be Independent, and Be Compassionate. Her message to readers is captured in this visionary chronicling of sociological events and ecological changes over 35 years in the Adirondack Park. WOODSWOMAN, WOODSWOMAN II, WOODSWOMAN III, also available from West of the Wind Publications, Inc., Westport, NY.

The Civilian Conservation Corps

Book by Jackie McFadden, The Civilian Conservation Corps Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Civilian Conservation Corps books, This book is a list of citations covering the wealth of information written about the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The CCC was President Franklin D. Roosevelt's favorite and most respected New Deal program. It provided economic assistance and hope for the future to the many enlisted men and their families during the height of the Great Depression. These men developed state parks, built roads and bridges and restored the environment from the devastation caused by droughts and deforestation of the west. Through hard work, they found renewed pride in themselves and their country. Their efforts can be seen in former camp sites and parks across the nation. There continues to be a fascination with the CCC. It is often studied as a model program of youth service work, conservation, and adult education. This collection will be useful to all who study the New Deal era and especially to those who concentrate on the CCC. The bibliography is organized by material type, including Federal Government documents, magazine, and journal articles, ERIC documents, books (including theses and dissertations), videos and films. further assist the researcher.
