I met the author at a school assembly. He was so captivating that I decided to buy this book as a gift for my dad fur Father's Day. My dad is an enthusiast for NY and the Adirondacks, so this book was sure to be a hit. According to my dad, it's so well written that he felt as though he was in the canoe with Peter Lourie. My dad's friend started reading it when he saw it laying on his coffee table. He loved it so much that he ordered a copy for his collection.
