A not too greatly changed Eden : the story of the Philosophers' Camp in the Adirondacks
In this book, James Schlett recounts the story of the Philosophers' Camp, from the lives and careers of - and friendships and frictions among - the participants to the extensive preparations for the expedition and the several-day encampment to its lasting legacy. Schlett's account is a sweeping tale that provides vistas of the dramatically changing landscapes of the United States in the second half of the nineteenth century. As he relates, the scholars later formed an Adirondack Club that set out to establish a permanent encampment at nearby Ampersand Pond.
