Adirondack Bear Tales

dc gilbert

A wonderfully, charming collection of true tales taken from generations of family camping and vacationing at Raquette Lake, deep in the heart of the Adirondack Park of Upstate New York. Fun stories to read to your children or tell while sitting around the campfire. According to one reader, Adirondack Bear Tales is a superlative blend of family, nature, humor, and fright. Suitable for children of all ages!


In this up coming sequel to Serpents Underfoot, JD Cordell’s mother returns to Vietnam to find her adopted Montagnard brother, hoping he survived the war. When Mai disappears into the seedy underworld of Ho Chi Mihn City (formally Saigon), JD now retired from the U.S. Navy, travels to Vietnam accompanied by his K9 Ajax to search for her and finds himself mixed up in a war between an elusive gun runner and an ex-Viet Cong Colonel turned drug warlord. It is a dangerous situation where even a former SEAL may need a little help from some old friends.
