Sandra Weber has authored several books about Adirondack history, mountain hiking, and women. Her book Breaking Trail: Remarkable Women of the Adirondacks (with folksinger 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 Peggy Lynn). 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.
