Book Synopsis
Daisy grew up beneath the western gaze of Whiteface Mountain in the Adirondacks, in the small hamlet of Bloomingdale, at the turn of the 20th century.

She experienced great love and great loss over her 57 years of life. Daisy became a trusted midwife by 1920, worked in a bean cannery during the Great Depression, and supported the boys overseas during World War II by becoming a drill press operator at an airplane factory.

But none of that adequately describes her life, her loves, her triumphs, or her heartaches over five decades.

Perhaps a week spent with her in anticipation of a daughter's wedding, along with a lifetime of flashbacks, and a journey alongside her in her final years...this may give us a 'mountain's view' of a life lived well.

Garnered from countless family stories, enriched by real historical details and actual family photographs, embellished a little by the author's imagination... this story takes the reader into the life of Daisy Emmons which otherwise would have been lost as generations go by.

To those who learn of her story, she has bequeathed a strong woman's legacy of devotion to family, courage, and resilience.

About The Author
Author bio image
The author, Judy Hutchings, has visited Bloomingdale and Whiteface Mountain and camped in the Adirondacks all her years. She discovered a love for family history in her teen years, and that passion has never wavered... though perhaps it has mellowed as she now enjoys living in the moment with her husband, children, and grandchildren.
