Fans of this highly regarded boat type will be pleased. The book features color photos and artwork throughout, and is quite the detailed history of the craft. Although the book's author passed away in 2015, the book has been published in 2018 thanks to the help and support of Edward Comstock Jr., and Christopher Woodward. The book is co-pub'd by The Adirondack Experience (formerly The Adirondack Museum) and Bauhan Publishing, and testament to their ability to produce quality books.
