Listen to this story
Patricia Reiss Brooks' book, Mountain Shadows, is an adventure novel of courage, danger and love. Reiss is a native of Lake Placid and her book is set in the North Country during the wild days of Prohibition. It delves into rum running and efforts of the famous Troop B of New York State Troopers to curtail the activities. It also offers an intimate look into the emotional and physical stresses of a tuberculosis patient taking the cure in Saranac Lake. Todd Moe spoke with Patricia Brooks at the Hotel Saranac, and asked why she set the book in the Adirondacks during the 1920's.
