Mark Swanson spent much of his life as a resident of the Adirondack Park, and has written extensively in the form of personal journals and diaries over the last 50 years.  Mr. Swanson describes his writings as “Thoreauvian in nature”, documenting the author’s “day to day life in and relationship with the region”.  He has lived in Saranac Lake since 1981, and was brought up around the Adirondack Park, where his grandfather was a state game warden and his great uncle a caretaker at Bog Lake Camp.

This ongoing collection currently consists of typed diary entries covering the years 2002-2004.
