Back cover copy

Home Reference Ralph Kylloe explores the classic style and detailing of Adirondack home design from both a historic and contemporary perspective. He shows us traditional style as well as contemporary interpretations of home design and decor in the style that made "great camps" an icon of vacation living and outdoor relaxation. Through personal tours of a ten Adirondack-style homes, from boat houses overhanging the lake, to riverside cabins, camps in the pines, and even the grandest of historic great camps-Top Ridge, Kylloe gives a sound if abbreviated history of New York's Adirondacks. From prehistory through the advent of wilderness recreation and outdoor living, the lifestyle that brought generations of vacationers to the lakes and mountains of upstate New York has much more influence today than as geographic region. Adirondack has become an enduring style, rich with furnishings handcrafted from indigenous materials. Birch bark veneer on bureaus, chests of drawers, lampshades, mirror frames, and more is the most readily identified icon of Adirondack style. The application of twigs in geometric or mosaic patterns is emulated all over the country. For cabin or camp, vacation house or permanent residence, the spirit of the Adirondacks is the epitome of mountain living. Ralph Kylloe's love for the region informs his brilliant photography and pithy commentary.show more
