7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Martin A Hogan HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on August 3, 2003
Format: Paperback
Author Martin Podskoch has taken on the enormous task of documenting the history of the Adirondack Fire Towers. From inception in the early 1900's (due to widespread forest fires) to the current day, Mr. Podskock has left no stone unturned.
Each tower's history, lore and fascinating story is told with each one, including a complete listing of all the tower observers by year and the forest rangers who were responsible. There are countless, incredible stories of these amazing observers and rangers over the years, some spending months in remote locations and others deluged with the curious public.
From the birth of wooden towers to the taller metal towers, some with phones, each one is completely covered. Most of the tower observers, forest rangers and families are here in hundreds of well kept photos and each tower has a map showing the trail route and location.
Over thirty towers are in this first edition which covers the Southern half of the Adirondacks. The second edition of the Northern half will be released soon. They will make fantastic companion books.
