Just released this past November, Tug Hill: Shaping the Future of the Region is now available in many local establishments around the region.
Author Norah Machia tells the story of the Tug Hill Commission and its efforts to help local governments with a variety of issues, including natural resource conservation and economic development. Color photography of many familiar Tug Hill locales help tell the story of the work done by the commission’s leaders, staff and volunteers to build strong relationships with the people of the Tug Hill region, resulting in a successful partnership that has spanned decades.
Machia also brings to life the stories of Tug Hill residents who have worked diligently to protect and develop their lands, allowing others to enjoy the richness and diversity of this 2,100-square-mile rural region in Northern New York.
