News Article about The Forests I Called Home, by Jodi Auborn

Ticonderoga woman pens book


  Jodi Auborn
June 09, 2011
Ticonderoga — Ticonderoga author Jodi Auborn recently had her second book published, "The Forests I Called Home: A Memoir of Living, Leaving, and Loving the Woods and Sea".

"Last August, my publisher contacted all their authors to see if they'd be interested in writing a memoir or autobiography," Auborn said. "I wondered why anybody would be interested in reading about my life, since I'm only in my early 30s, and not famous. But then I began to think about my experiences growing up in the eastern Adirondacks, and on the coasts of Maine and Cape Cod, where I lived and vacationed as a teenager and young adult. I decided to write about those places."

According to the book, it is "a story of growing up in the 1980s and 90s in upstate New York. It's a story about pets and vacations, and the roundabout ways that life can lead you home. It's a celebration of the special places that make us who we are, and of the solitary journeys that strengthened the author's faith in God and sense of self."

Much of the book deals with the author's childhood dream of living in the wilderness, which was fulfilled when she was 10 years old when her parents built a log home in Hadley. She writes about how those three years in the woods was a bittersweet time, when her parents divorced. Then, she found comfort in drawing, riding her horse and writing the drafts of what would become her first book, "Stormwind of the North Country," published in 2009.

During the summer that the house was under construction, the author lived at her grandparents' home in Streetroad, which she describes in the book. Local readers will also recognize her descriptions of area places such as Putnam Pond Campground, where she vacationed every summer growing up, the old Storytown in Lake George, Treadway Mountain in the Pharaoh Wilderness, and the town of Lake Luzerne, where she lived during her high school years.

The author has donated a copy of "The Forests I Called Home" to Ticonderoga's Black Watch Memorial Library. Signed copies may be purchased at Sugar and Spice Country Shoppe in Ticonderoga.
