‘Axton Landing:’ a heavy dose of history

October 26, 2011
By CHRISTIAN WOODARD - Adirondack Center for Writing

"Axton Landing," Tony Holtzman's new Adirondack novel, is a lively glimpse of 19th century logging in the North Country. With a heavy dose of real history, Holtzman pushes through the tension of massive log drives, the terror of typhoid and greedy foremen in the time before the Adirondack Park existed. If you pick up the book as a galloping adventure story, you won't be disappointed. But it's impossible to read "Axton Landing" without learning from its physical and ideological landscape.
