Firetowers of the Catskills: Their History and Lore
Author: Martin Podskoch
This fascinating chronicle of Catskill Mountain fire towers includes the history of the towers that once stood vigil over the heavily forested slopes on the lookout for any sign of smoke that could lead to devastating fires. At one time there were 23 fire towers in and around the Catskill Mountains. Author Martin Podskoch has researched the history of each and gathered stories of the rangers who supervised them and the pilots who replaced them.
