The Adirondack Guide-Boat 
(2015 Reprint)
By Kenneth and Helen Durant

First published in 1098, The Adirondack Guide-Boat  details the history and design of a double-ended, planked wooden workboat unique to one region of Upstate New York. The model was constructed by the thousands in small Adirondack shops during its pre-1930 heyday and remains popular today. 
Part I of two sections places the guide-boat in historical context with the support of original source material- including interviews with descendants of some of the region's pioneering boatbuilders. The construction drawings and meticulous notes provided in Part II are indispensable to anyone thinking about recreating one of these unusual craft.
