An anonymous narrative of a camping trip in the Adirondacks, Moose River Mountain, Black Bear Mountain, Bald Mountain, Limekiln Lake. The party fished for trout (though sometimes ended up with shiners), foraged for blueberries and raspberries, and met some characters along the way, including (to the author's surprise) a female fire warden whom he observes "must have been descended from sturdy stock."
The two maps of double-page Little Moose Lake, Fourth Lake and Limekiln Lake are carefully hand-drawn in black and red ink, and upon close inspection the pencil lines are visible. The 1 page map is of rouite from Syracuse to Fulton Chain of Lakes.

A charming narrative and photographic record of roughing it in the Adirondacks in the 1920s.
