I’ve been researching Henry Abbott and I think I’ve identified the person who wrote the Birchbark Books as Henry Abbott the watchmaker/jeweler from New York City. I followed these clues. First of all we see (at: http://tinyurl.com/y5exoo) the “author of many Adirondack tales” was an inventor. Then (at: http://tinyurl.com/wtloq) we find “Henry Abbott, New York watchmaker and passionate angler.” These two clues led me to believe, I hope correctly, that he’s the man in this article--which was the most information I could find--at: http://www.nawcc.org/pub/articles/feb01/feb01.htm
