Publisher's Summary

Open your eyes to one of the greatest naturalist writers of all time with these two short stories by William H.H. Murray. These stories, featuring John Norton, the trapper, were so well loved, that Murray performed them more than 500 times, on book tours in New England and New York. Written at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, Murray’s stories of the Adirondack wilderness of the 1860s made outdoor activities like hiking and camping popular for the first time. These stories not only created an audience for writers like Jack London, but also spawned the booming outdoor recreation industries of today. Murray’s timeless words paired with John McDonough’s vibrant narration make Christmas in the Adirondacks the perfect listening experience. This audiobook will fill your heart with the wonder and joy of the great outdoors while McDonough’s soothing voice warms you like a roaring fire on a cold winter’s day.
