Two in the Wilderness
Author: Sandra Weber

Review by: Phil Brown


Calkins Creek Books
Hardcover, $19.99, 48 pages.

In her fifth work about the Adirondacks, author Sandra Weber has written a children’s book about her adventures in the High Peaks with her 11-year-old daughter, Marcy. The two trekked 60 miles over 11 days, climbing Mount Marcy and Mount Marshall, hiking to Indian Pass and Avalanche Pass, and camping at Duck Hole. They were not alone: The ubiquitous Carl Heilman II took color photos every step of the way. This well-designed book also contains old-time illustrations, sidebars on Adirondack history (natural and human), and snippets from Marcy’s journal.
