Popular “Chilson Hill” Book is Back!
“Up on a Hill and Therabouts, An Adirondack Childhood” by Gloria Stubing Rist is back! Several years ago we first introduced this book in our Gift Shop when the author donated a number of copies of her privately printed book to The Ticonderoga Historical Society. What a sensation it was, the book flew off the shelves. Ms. Rist then donated another quantity and they also sold out quickly. For sometime no other copies were available. Now we have this book under a new imprint from SUNYPRESS. Reformatted, re-organized and with better quality photographic printing. Here is your opportunity to re-live her experiences as a child growing up on “Chilson Hill” during the 1930s. You will cry and you will laugh with her stories. Again, a must read. Softcover $24.95
