Traces the extensive but little-known history of blacks in the Adirondacks.

"A comprehensive collection of information about blacks in the region over a century-long period. . . . An excellent resource and starting point for researchers interested in this topic."—Myra Armstead, author of "Lord, Please Don’t Take Me in August": African Americans in Newport and Saratoga Springs, 1870–1930

"Svenson’s work is filled with thought-provoking and evocative stories of African Americans in the Adirondacks. The book’s restoration of their memory is a significant feat. Fascinating and richly researched."—Graham Hodges, author of David Ruggles: A Radical Black Abolitionist and the Underground Railroad in New York City
