The Adirondack Region of New York State, as large as the neighboring state of Vermont,is a nearly pristine mountain wilderness of rivers, lakes, and marshes, a skein of connected waterways presided over by the Appalachains trending North to Canada. The beauty and wildlife of the region have attracted vistors for several centuries, and the visitors—from Indians and woodsmen to canoeists and cottagers—have relied on boats to get around. This rich heritage of small craft, their pleasures and uses, is investigated here with vintage photographs and charming text by Hallie Bond, The Adirondack Musuem's Curator of Collections and Boats. A quarter of the book is a review of boats in the Adironack Museum's Collection.
