The author, Thomas Reeves Lord, was born in Mt. Holly, NJ. After receiving his B.S. in Biology from Rutgers University in 1965, he furthered his expertise in the field with an M.S. from Trenton State in 1969 and his Doctorate from his undergraduate Alma Mater in 1983.

With his professional career cemented in academia, Dr. Lord is a full professor at Indiana University of Pennsylvania teaching the new generations all about our environment and ecology. During the summer months, he continues his pursuit of our natural world at the Silver Bay Association on Lake George, NY. There he takes care of SBA's Nature Center and organizes twice-daily hikes into the surrounding area, from gentle campus trails to full-day hikes up Black Mountain.

The Stories of Lake George series were inspired by his time at Silver Bay. Through the years of researching in dusty local libraries and talking with the various old-timers in the area, Dr. Lord has assembled those stories and poems into a series of books relating the fact and folklore of Lake George's colorful history.

"Bright scenes of mountains and of lake,
With rugged glens, where torrents break,
In floods of silver white.

Mid cliffs and craigs and flinty peaks,
Green woods, and isles, and flowing creeks,
In checkered shade and light. "

- Thomas Nelson, 1865
