Book cover for the black woods by author Amy Godine, pursuing racial justice on the Adirondack Frontier

Independent scholar Amy Godine has been writing and speaking about ethnic, migratory, and Black Adirondack history for more than three decades. 

Her newest book, The Black Woods, chronicles the history of Black pioneers in New York's northern wilderness and recovers a robust history of those who carved from the wilderness a future for their families and their civic rights.

Books will be available for purchase.
