The name Nessmuk was derived from the local native Indian language meaning a RAKE WOODDUCK . George W. Sears used the name Nessmuk for his pen name.

George Washington Sears (December 2, 1821 May 1, 1890) was a sportswriter for Forest and Stream magazine in the 1880s and an early conservationist. His stories, appearing under the pen name, "Nessmuk" popularized selfguided canoe camping tours of the Adirondack lakes in open, lightweight solo canoes and what is today called ultra light camping.
