Cost is $19.95. Canoe and Kayak Guide: East-Central New York State editors Kathie Armstrong and Chet Harvey have addressed the major rivers and tributaries from the NewcombNorth Hudson area to Kingston and from Herkimer in the west-central portion of the Adirondack Park to western Vermont, Massachusetts, and Connecticut. It includes the wealth of inviting waterways in and around New Yorks Capital District. Armstrong and Harvey, active members of ADK and the Schenectady Chapter ADK, have paddled canoes all of their lives. They have served as leaders for many local ADK trips and have led several wilderness excursions in northern Canada. Their paddling adventures have ranged north to the Northwest Territories in Canada and the Arctic Ocean, east to Norway, west to California, and south to Texas. The rivers and lakes of the Adirondacks remain their paddling home.
