The Adirondack Park sprawls across six million acres in upstate New York.  Bigger than Yellowstone, Yosemite, Glacier and the Grand Canyon combined, it is by far the largest park in the country. Yet it is the only one on the continent in which large human populations live and whose land is divided almost evenly between protected wilderness and privately owned tracts.  This patchwork pattern of land ownership has created an utterly unique place. 

The story of the Adirondacks is told by a series of passionate characters, each with a distinct perspective on its past, present and future.  Among those we’ll meet are a craftsman restoring one of the legendary Great Camps, rustic retreats for the super rich, an Olympic hopeful, training in Lake Placid, home to two historic Winter Games, and a young visitor climbing his first Adirondack High Peak.  Through them and many others, we’ll explore this remarkable region.  At its very heart is a delicate and dynamic relationship between progress and preservation.
