Synopsis: A history of America's most remarkable small craft. Sought after by collectors today, this feather-light "double-ender" is unique to the Adirondacks and is admiredby wooden boat enthusiasts everywhere. With plans and commentary by John Gardner, Curator, Mystic Seaport Museum. Illustrated. 4th printing, 1999.

About the Author: 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.
