Less Personal – More Historic


Less Personal – More Historic

Rabbitwild Cover

Today I have been in communication with a wonderful Acquisitions Editor with Syracuse University Press. Although there is still interest in publishing “Rabbitwild”, the introduction must be attuned to the historical significance of William S. Wicks.

After combing through hundreds of personal records, archives, articles, scanned documents and a thesis, I do have access to the necessary facts … but there is always more isn’t there?

Remembering Wicks,

About Stories, Old & New

My background is in Public Relations with a B.S. from Syracuse University. I would like to publish "Rabbitwild - A Shelter in the Wilderness", written by my Great Grandfather, William S. Wicks, a gifted early American Architect and Naturalist. Wicks, a member of the first group to purchase 100,000 acres of Adirondack Wilderness with the idea that it should remain a "forever wild" preserve, in fact designed and built "Rabbitwild" within the Adirondack League Club. And so, this blog isn't about me at all, but about remembering Wicks, his legacy, love and loyalty to natural design. By happenstance, he created the same appreciation in me for all that is beautiful, by nature.
