Shootouts, jewel heists, bank robberies, manhunts, and unsolved murders…why it’s just another day in the North Country, but in a bygone era. Local author and historian Niki Kourofsky’s new book ,Adirondack Outlaws: Bad Boys and Lawless Ladies, exposes the North Country's shadowy past of felons and their foibles and their dirty deeds. Niki’s Adirondack roots run generations deep, grounded in the ore sand of the one-time mining community of Lyon Mountain.
And you can hear Niki read from Armed and dangerous: Adirondack Outlaws at the Schroon Lake Library, on Wednesday, April 15. You may be familiar with Niki’s work as she is a senior editor at Adirondack Life magazine. Here is the mini review from Amazon
“Her wry, lively storytelling puts readers right in the thick of. Spanning eight decades of Adirondack history and ranging from Glens Falls to the Canadian border, Adirondack Outlaws is a rollicking page-turner, rich in chilling details and amply illustrated with historical photographs”
