About the Book

Gem of the Adirondacks traces the changes brought about in the Adirondack community of Star Lake by the arrival and ultimate departure of industrial-scale iron mining. The Benson Mines was once the largest operation of its type in the world. Based on his research and access to rare materials, the author traces a history of more than 100 years. The narrative is enriched by his first-hand experiences as a worker in the mine and his observations of changes in the community decades after its closure.
