Book review: "Nehasane Fire Observer"

Listen to this story
In the early '40s, the superintendent of Nehasane Park, the vast preserve west of Long Lake asked Francis Boone to be the observer in the Park's fire tower. Nehasane Fire Observer, An Adirondack Woman's Summer of '42 is the first-hand account of that summer in the wilderness--a young woman finding her way in life alone in a fire tower, immersed in the outdoors, and coping with the ever present danger of living alone in the woods. Betsy Kepes and her family spend their summers at a fire tower in Idaho. She has this review.
