Canoeing the Adirondacks With Nessmuk The Adirondack Letters of George Washington Sears
Price: $15.95
Quantity in Basket: none
It's most appropriate that this new edition of Sears's letters to Forest and Stream be published while the Park celebrates its 100th anniversary amidst much debate conceming forever wild issues, new housing developments, hunting and fishing rights, and acid rain. When Sears, also known as Nessmuk, canoed the Adirondacks, much of it was wild, unexplored, and his letters often capture his excitement when, canoeing on a small stream, a new and incredible vista opened up before him. But this book is not just for the lover of wildemess and the outdoorsman, but also for the canoeist and boater, the amateur hobbyist who longs to design and build the perfect canoe. Sears's letters and the editor's introduction are filled with material on canoes, canoe-making, and the very special relationship between Nessmuk and one of the master canoe builders of all time, J. Henry Rushton. Adirondack resident Rushton built a number of special order canoes for Nessmuk, each time improving upon their durability, handling skills, and lightness. But the one canoe that held a special place in Nessmok's heart was the Sairy Garnp. It was extraordinarily light and strong and Nessmuk took it on his last Adirondack cruise. Nessmuk's letters brought him fame and the magazine increased its circulation. He went on to write about other places, but his Adirondack letters will always hold a special place in wildemess writing, as they unfold in vivid detail the pageantry of the waterways of a bygone era.
