Generously illustrated with contemporary maps and engravings in full color, this work explores the origins and meanings of the word Adirondack through a meticulous analysis of primary documents about the Native peoples and physical place bearing the name. The earliest written accounts, journals, maps, as well as contemporary scholarship in the fields of anthropology and geology have been assembled by Dr. Sulavik to present the first comprehensive history of the 1535-1838 period in the Adirondacks. These sources are identified, assembled, and analyzed in one place for the first time. This will benefit scholarship as well as contribute to the general understanding of early Adirondack history.

Stephen B. Sulavik, M.D., first visited the Adirondacks in 1955; an avid fisherman, he became intrigued with the Adirondack guideboat, eventually becoming an authority on its builders and evolution. He then turned his passionate curiosity and well-honed research skills to the word Adirondack and to the region so named. Dr. Sulavik is a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the Yale University School of Medicine and Professor Emeritus of Medicine at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. He has published extensively and received many awards for clinical and teaching excellence.
