In August 1858, William James Stillman, a painter and founding editor of the acclaimed but short-lived art journal The Crayon, organized a camping expedition for some of America’s preeminent intellectuals to Follensby Pond in the Adirondacks. In this book, James Schlett recounts the story of the Philosophers’ Camp, from the lives and careers of the participants to the extensive preparations for the expedition and the several-day encampment to its lasting legacy. Schlett’s account is a sweeping tale that provides vistas of the dramatically changing landscapes of the United States in the second half of the nineteenth century.
