Meet Sandra Weber.......
My passion for writing was sparked by my passion for the Adirondack Mountains. The mountains, meadows, rivers, and lakes of northern New York State awaken my creative voice. After spending many summers in the region, I have now permanently put down roots at my drafty log cabin in the Adirondack woods where I enjoy listening, watching, reading, and digging into mountain legends.
"The Blue Line is a great divide in my life; part of my life trickles to wilderness and part trickles to civilization. Each tributary fills a purpose in my soul and the world."
-"Dividing Lines" by Sandra Weber, Adirondac magazine, July/August 1994.

Book review: Adirondack Roots
Book review: Mount Marcy
Book review: Two in the Wilderness
Sandra Weber has authored several books about Adirondack history, mountain hiking and women. Her book Breaking Trail: Remarkable Women of the Adirondacks (with Peggy Lynn) profiles the diverse lives of 25 women and Two in the Wilderness (with photos by Carl Heilman) describes the adventures of Sandra and her 11-year old daughter as they backpack through the High Peaks together. She is also well-known for her dramatic portrayals of Mary Brown in “Times of Trouble” and of Mother Johnson, Jeanne Robert Foster, Grace Hudowalski and other women in “Mountain Women Can Be Heroes” (with folksinger Peggy Lynn).
Sandra’s next book focuses on a marble sculpture, The Portrait Monument to Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, which stands in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol. The statue symbolizes the struggles and triumphs of the women’s movement, from the right to speak in public to the right to vote to the Equal Rights Amendment. It represents womanhood---all women of the past, present, and future—and the unfinished work of woman.
From her base camp in Elizabethtown, Sandra enjoys exploring legends, paddling, and hiking. In 2003, she finished climbing all forty-six high peaks becoming Adirondack Forty-Sixer #5227.
