Hailed as one of the most important books about the Adirondacks to have ever been written, this text contains a number of fascinating essays that were first published in book form in 1878. Warner's chief theme is the feeble, often ridiculous figure that the human being constitute in the wilderness, with his powerful love of nature, combined with his wit and social satire, making this text as engaging a read today as it was more than a century ago. A wonderful text sure to appeal to anyone with an interest in the Adirondacks, In The Wilderness constitutes a must-have addition to collections of Warner's work and is not to be missed by discerning readers. The sections of this book include: Deephaven; Exile; Adirondack Stories;A Gentleman of Leisure; The Snow-Image, and other Twice-Told Tales; Watch and Ward, A Study of Hawthorne, Detmold, and The Story of a Mine. Charles Dudley Warner (1829 - 1900) was an American novelist, essayist, and close friend of Mark Twain. This book was originally published in 1878, and is proudly republished here complete with a new biography of the author.
