About the Author: Adirondack Author Paul Laskey has been a long time member of the Adirondack Mountain Club. He has spent many years hiking the Adirondack Mountains and traveled throughout many parts the United States hiking and seeking adventure. After joining the Hadley Mountain Fire Tower Committee many years ago he developed a keen interest in Fire Towers and their History. For the past several years he has been doing talks and slide shows on this subject. In 1999 he decided to write a book on all the towers that remained standing in New York State. He states, There were several tower books out at that time, and interest in the subject was growing. No book was published on all the states towers, so I felt the timing was right and there was a market for that book. I was correct, response has been fantastic, it's selling better than I thought possible.
