It's been over 100 years since New York State decreed that the Adirondacks would remain "forever wild," but the Adirondack Park is more than just a natural preserve: it's a distinctive amalgam of public and private lands, human and natural communities. We talk to Jon Erickson, co-editor of the new book "The Great Experiment in Conservation: Voices from the Adirondack Park," about the successes and failures of this region just across the water.
We also talk to Pam Blair, whose two sons have just deployed to Afghanistan.
