Tales of the Adirondacks CD Now Available

PLATTSBURGH, NY __ Campfire Tales of the Adirondack North Country, a collection of tales, myths and legends told by the people who have investigated them, is now available on compact disc at Borders Bookstore and Peacock Music in Plattsburgh.

The CD, produced by Dr. Timothy Clukey, assistant professor of communication at the State University of New York College at Plattsburgh, is the first in a series of audio pieces providing cultural documentation of regional folklore for the Adirondack North Country.

"These recordings capture the mystique and history of the North Country by documenting the tales and legends of the area, including hauntings, executions and mysteries that have been passed down from generation to generation around the campfire," said Clukey.

Storytellers featured on the CD include: Plattsburgh City Court Judge and former Clinton County District Attorney Penelope Clute; Gordie Little, television and radio personality and columnist for the Press Republican; Chris Ortloff, New York State assemblyman; and Dr. Douglas Skopp, distinguished teaching professor of history.

The CD will soon be available at other outlets across the North Country.

Clukey is currently doing research on stories from some of the more mountainous areas of the region and has begun work on a second CD.
