In a career spanning the settling of the Adirondack wilderness, the heyday of the guide, the steamship, and the grand hotel, pioneer photographer Seneca Ray Stoddard produced more than 8,000 images of the evolving landscape — the largest documentary record of late nineteenth century life in the region. More than a century later, Mark Bowie literally followed in his footsteps, faithfully re-photographing the exact locations of many of his classic images. The results are fascinating, sometimes surprising, in every case, illuminating. Co-published by North Country Books, Utica, NY (315) 735-4877 and the
