THE "VENICE OF THE WOODS"
Since the late 1800s thousands have come to the Adirondack wilderness of up-state New York in search of game, fish, health, or just the "wide outdoors". The story of the boats and the ways in which people used them is essentially the human history of the region.

MATTHEW FONTAINE MAURY
In the early nineteenth century little was published or universally known of the world's ocean currents and prevailing winds. Confounded by the lack of information a young American naval officer, Matthew Fontaine Maury, set out to collate and interpret data from countless naval and merchant logbooks. From his research he went on to produce pilots and charts that would bring enormous benefits to the world's shipping and would become predecessors to many of today's publications. Tom Jackson
