"Adirondack Guides" Presented by: Sharp Swan; contributing author of Heaven Up H'istedness Local historian, Sharp Swan, is a regular speaker at the Cabin Fever Lecture Series, and he joins us again this year with a new topic, discussing mountain guides; from early Adirondack history to present day conservationists.

Knowledgeable guides, quirky characters, staunch outdoorsmen, and revered storytellers; these guides played an integral role in unlocking the wild Adirondacks to enthusiasts of all ages and abilities. Calling upon the experiences and stories of Orson Schofield "Old Mountain" Phelps, Bill Nye, Alvah Dunning, Elijah Simonds, Sharp's discussion will explain how these men blazed the proverbial trails that lead us to the mountains today.

Sharp is a contributing author of the book Heaven Up H'istedness: the history of the Adirondack Forty-Sixers and the High Peaks of the Adirondack
