It is a three part book, first describing the early history of New York State, and how and why the fire tower program began and in later years, why is was abandoned.
The second Part is a short story written by Helen Ellett, who was one of the first woman observers to be appointed as a result of the labor shortages during WWII. Helen describes all her adventure's and her job as a woman observer.
The last section covers all the standing towers, facts, history, lore, and trail descriptions and directions to each are provided. Following that section is a listing of tower groups and how to contact each.
While this book is new on the Amazon site, it is one of the best selling books on the subject of fire observation towers.
L'autore: Adirondack Author Paul Laskey has been a long time member of the Adirondack Mountain Club. He has spent many years hiking the Adirondack Mountains and traveled throughout many parts the United States hiking and seeking adventure. After joining the Hadley Mountain Fire Tower Committee many years ago he developed a keen interest in Fire Towers and their History. For the past several years he has been doing talks and slide shows on this subject. In 1999 he decided to write a book on all the towers that remained standing in New York State. He states, There were several tower books out at that time, and interest in the subject was growing. No book was published on all the states towers, so I felt the timing was right and there was a market for that book. I was correct, response has been fantastic, it's selling better than I thought possible.
