The 21 Mine by Jeffrey Kelly is a fictionalized story of an escape from a shock incarceration camp near Port Henry. It's got some good mining history, a bit of local economy and culture. Anyone wants it PM and I'll drop it in the mail, bought it at a used book sale on dime day, the postage is on me.

I am currently re-reading Donaldson's two-volume history of the Adirondacks.
