Life on the Border free pdf Excerpt from Life on the Border: Sixty Years Ago The strip of Northern New York, that skirts the north and northwestern base of the Adirondacks and trends away northward to the Canada line or latitude 45 degrees, and thence in Canada to the St. Lawrence River, is one of the handsomest outspreads of land on the face of creation. From Plattsburg, the most northern town of any note on the west side of Lake Champlain to Ogdensburg by the old road over the Chateaugay hills Is not far from 120 miles. At the time of which I am writing, 1822 to 1835, nearly the whole of this broad strip was covered with a dense forest, yet to be cleared, but settlements had been made at many points, especially in the north part of St. Lawrence, the northern end of Clinton and the eastern corner of Franklin Counties. The latter was now becoming the centre of attraction for poor men because of the cheapness of the land and the facilities offered by the land agent for settlement. With the forest covering the entire face of the country it was impossible to discern the beauties now apparent, and the industrious axemen, intent on clearing the soil so they could get a livelihood from it, never realized that future generations would travel with delight over and through the very country under their feet admiring its peculiar attractions especially in summer. The descent from the Adirondacks is over gentle declivities terminating on terraces some two or three miles across till you reach the last decline upon the alluvials of the St. Lawrence.
