Local Settings Redux

For a relatively small, rural area, there appear to be quite a few books set in the Finger Lakes. I’m reposting it here, so I’ll have a place to point when Upsaid goes away.

Here are some I’ve found and read:

Beth Saulnier
Author of five mysteries set in modern Ithaca

Claudia Bishop
Author of three “Dr. McKenzie” mysteries set in modern Trumansburg

Miriam Grace Monfredo
Author of six mysteries set in Seneca Falls in the mid 1800s

From Where We Stand: Recovering a Sense of Place
Contemporary nonfiction set on north end of Seneca Lake

Wolves and Honey: A Hidden History of the Natural World
Contemporary nonfiction set on Seneca Lake

The Botany of Desire
Mentions the collection of wild apple trees in Geneva

This one has been suggested, but I have not read it:

Fool on the Hill

Fantasy set in the magical land of Cornell University.
