Christmas in the Adirondacks

Open your eyes to one of the greatest naturalist writers of all time with these two short stories by William H.H. Murray. These stories, featuring John Norton, the trapper, were so well loved, that Murray performed them more than 500 times, on book tours in New England and New York. Written at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, Murray’s stories of the Adirondack wilderness of the 1860s made outdoor activities like hiking and camping popular for the first time.

Audible Editor Reviews

Put another log on the fire, wrap up with your favorite flannel blanket, and let yourself disappear into the beautiful wilderness of William H. H. Murray. The two stories here that make up Murray's Christmas in the Adirondacks will have listeners pining for simpler times and the beautiful scenery of the Northeast country. And with the enthusiastic voice of veteran narrator John McDonough leading the way, it won't be but a few minutes into this audiobook before you've forgotten you are not actually in a warm cabin up in the middle of the Adirondacks.

Publisher's Summary

Open your eyes to one of the greatest naturalist writers of all time with these two short stories by William H.H. Murray. These stories, featuring John Norton, the trapper, were so well loved, that Murray performed them more than 500 times, on book tours in New England and New York. Written at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, Murray’s stories of the Adirondack wilderness of the 1860s made outdoor activities like hiking and camping popular for the first time. These stories not only created an audience for writers like Jack London, but also spawned the booming outdoor recreation industries of today. Murray’s timeless words paired with John McDonough’s vibrant narration make Christmas in the Adirondacks the perfect listening experience. This audiobook will fill your heart with the wonder and joy of the great outdoors while McDonough’s soothing voice warms you like a roaring fire on a cold winter’s day.

    A great read, you must listen to it. Great life lessons of brotherly love, forgiveness, selflessness, and great wit all through the short story for tough men, gentle ladies, and the kids will love it too.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Trapper John, showing life lessons in selflessness, consideration for the less fortunate, giving out of one's want, not excess.. and so on..

    love the wit as well.. you will laugh
