Bill Ingersoll has hiked and backpacked in the wildernesses of Montana, Wyoming, New Mexico, and California, but feels most at home in the grand forests of the Adirondacks. He became a co-author for the Discover series in 2000 and has now become the series' publisher. He is the author of Snowshoe Routes: Adirondacks and Catskills, and his articles and photos have appeared in Adirondack Explorer, Adirondack Sports & Fitness, and Adirondack Life magazines. Ingersoll has served on the conservation committees for several organizations, and in 2014 he established the Adirondack Wilderness Explorers group on Meetup. You will find him exploring the North Country with his dog Lexie in all four seasons, by trail, snowshoe, and canoe.
