Join Adirondack author Gail Huntley as she signs copies of her newest book: SO PROUDLY THEY HAILED, Book One.

"This story begins in 1816 in Scotland, a country ruled by wealth and class during the Industrial Revolution. When many tenant farmers like the Doddses lose their jobs to machines, they begin looking to America for work, land, and freedom. Join these brave pioneers on their epic journey from Scotland through Canada to America where they battle storms, disease, starvation, robbers, and unrequited love. Jenny Dodds must choose between her family and her love for John Scott. Her decision will lead her to many unexpected events which will affect several characters in the book. Spanning over two decades of history, this moving story delves into the history of the Scottish Border people, the settlements along the St. Lawrence River, and the early settlers of several Adirondack outposts including Chestertown, Newcomb, and Long Lake, New York. "
