The Adirondack Park Agency marks its 50th anniversary this year. In “A Wild Idea,” Brad Edmondson tells the dramatic story of how environmentalists persuaded the state to put strict limits on private land development in a territory the size of Vermont. Edmondson will also give a sneak preview of his next book, which shows how the global movement for large-scale land protection came together in the Adirondacks over the violent objections of local landowners.
