Product description

New York comes alive in the pages of "Wild New York." Author Charles Brumley and photographer Carl E. Heilman II traveled thousands of miles to give us this photographic portrait of the state's diverse and unique natural areas. Our state has nearly every type of natural landscape found in the continental United States! New York is the majestic Niagara Falls and the sandy beaches of Long Island. It is the stunning, historic Hudson Valley and the massive inland seas of Lakes Erie and Ontario. It is the fragile acres of alpine flora above Adirondack tree line and the snowy skies of the Tug Hill Plateau. " Wild New York" is the natural beauty of our state; it is what we see, hear, and feel as we paddle the longest free-flowing river in the northeast, the Delaware River; hike the state's highest peak, Mt. Marcy; or gaze across the steep gorge of Cattaraugus Creek in the underappreciated Zoar Valley. It is the call of the loon on countless lakes and ponds throughout Adirondack Park; the pounding of a powerful ocean surf on Long Island. It is that still, golden late-summer afternoon when you know the Empire State is where you're meant to be.
