Kenneth Durant (1889 1972) began spending summers in the Adirondacks as a child. A journalist, he opened and managed the American bureau of the Soviet news agency TASS for two decades and, after retirement, pursued his interest in the background of the guide-boat. His third wife, Helen van Dongen Durant (1909 2006), an internationally recognized documentary cinematographer, completed the book after Durant's death.Review:
This does it all for the famed hunting and fishing skiff of the North Woods. Still setting
the standard as an in-depth exposition of a single American boat type, The Adirondack
Guide-Boat has been used extensively by historians, museum curators, and students of the Adirondacks. It is wonderful to have the book back in print to enthrall a new generation of general readers and experts. --Peter Vermilya, Emeritus Curator of Small Craft, Mystic Seaport Museum
