Background: "Animal Land" - one of a cluster of American pleasure spots just south of Lake George, New York, - offers some unusually entertaining animal shows for children.
Here they can watch the Duck Derby, in which a sizeable field of ducks scramble post-haste over an enclosed track to the finishing post. They can meet many animal pets at close quarters and see the cigarette-smoking and tightrope-walking monkeys.
Near "Animal Land" are "Gaslight Village", "Ghost Town" and "Fort William Henry" - amusement places re-creating for Americans scenes and entertainments from American history.
