An Adirondack Passage: The Cruise of the Canoe Sairy Gamp
By Christine Jerome

In 1883, journalist and outdoorsman George Washington Sears ("Nessmuk") paddled his 9-foot, 10 1/2-pound canoe, the Sairy Gamp, 266 miles through the Adirondacks. A little over a hundred years later, the author Christine Jerome retraced his journey in a Kevlar version of the Sairy. The result is a rich, eloquent narrative that weaves Nessmuk's story with Jerome's and intersperses Adirondack natural and cultural history.
