FORT ANN, NY –-(Ammoland.com)- Author and outdoor journalist Dan Ladd of West Fort Ann in the southeastern Adirondacks has recently released a new book entitled, Well Seasoned in the Adirondacks – People, Places and Pastimes of Northern New York.

The book is a collection of articles and essays that have appeared in The Chronicle, a weekly newspaper in Glens Falls, New York for which the author pens a weekly outdoor column.

There is also one article that appeared in Outdoors Magazine. The book is dotted with a collection of Ladd?s photos which are also featured on the book?s cover.

“Many of my friends in the writing industry, especially those at The Chronicle have suggested I do a book like this,” said Ladd. “In fact, I would encourage any outdoor writer who is regularly published, or has been, to share their experiences and adventures with their readers.”

Well Seasoned in the Adirondacks is organized by the seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn. Each section features material pertaining to that season. For Winter there is a story on vintage snowmobile restoration as well as others on ice fishing, small game hunting, skiing and snowshoeing. The Spring and Summer chapters feature everything from fishing, camping and hiking to paddling, including one story about a historic Adirondack canoe trip.

The Autumn section is dedicated primarily to hunting and features several of the author’s relatives who had an influence on his hunting interest.

Among the hunting stories is a two-part feature Ladd wrote for The Chronicle in 2007 about a friend of his who was shot while hunting.

“This was one of the hardest and most important articles I ever wrote,” said the author. “To sit across the table from this man who I have known for many years and hear him talk about being near death and dealing with the hardships of recovery really hit home. Fortunately it doesn?t have a tragic ending. Still, I feel it is a story that ever hunter should read or hear before they load their gun.”

Well Seasoned in the Adirondacks comes on the heals of a second edition printing of the author?s first effort, Deer Hunting in the Adirondacks, which was first released in 2008 and updated in August of 2010. Both books are available through the author?s Web site, www.ADKHunter.com, where a mail order form can be downloaded.

Well Seasoned in the Adirondacks has a retail price of $17 and will soon be available at many local and retail outlets throughout the Adirondack region and beyond.
