This beautiful booklet from 1898 is only 26 pages long but lovingly shows St. Hubert's and Keene Valley at the turn of the century. There are black & white photographs of the Lower Ausable Lake, the Keene Valley Library, women on the trail with pack baskets and more. A true treasure for anyone with a love of the history of the high peaks.
"The Lower Lake, long, narrow and winding, has walls of precipitous rocks on either side which mount up and up a thousand feet from the lake, so steep and rugged that no man has ventured to climb them. Colvin is on the left, and that wonderful Indian Head, which stands like a sombre sentinel, at the entrance to the lake, and frowns down on the dark waters below."
