With a pullout map in the back of the reservoir all intact. Close to fine and bright pictorial stiff wraps with strong spine and clean text throughout. Nicely illustrated with photographs from the field.
I am doing genealogical research on my family, and my great grandfather died in an accident while working on the Ashokan Reservoir. I have taken trips to the Ashokan before, but this book gave me a glimpse into what the area was like before it was flooded, and during the building of the dam. The peaceful lake it is now gives no indication of the flurry of activity that took place to provide NYC with water. It is a great read and of value to anyone with ancestors involved in that project. The photos are excellent too.
