Organized in 1799, in the division of Clinton County, it is the second in territorial extent (St. Lawrence being the first) in the State, several of its Townships (Newcomb, Schroon, Minerva, Keene, and North Elba) being larger than some of the counties. It embraces nine tenths of the mountain system of the entire State, and the whole (except a few detached summits) of the northern portion, including as it does the five parallel ranges described in the commencement of this work. It thus bears the name of the Switzerland of the North, and is full of natural wonders and redolent of romance.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
