LaBastille's "Woodswoman" cabin will be preserved

The Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake announced over the weekend that it will preserve the cabin built by Anne LaBastille.

LaBastille's book "Woodswoman" was published in 1976 and established her as a prominent North Country voice.

She wrote about her experiences living alone at Twitchell Lake in the western Adirondacks and about her support for conservation of wild lands in the Park.
