Note from the Author

Lake George has been a source of wonder and exploration for me since I was introduced to her over 50 years ago.  I have filmed, photographed, read about, boated on and dove under ever since.

One of my greatest joys is taking folks out on the water and sharing facts, stories and legends about the places and people who are part of her storied history. 

Over time, as my knowledge increased, I just couldn’t keep all the details straight, so I started writing it down.  As my notebook grew, I began thinking that maybe other people would like to have this collation for their boat tours or just some fun things about Lake George to share with others.

Early on, as my infatuation compelled my research, I soon discovered that there was lots of information, but no real maps to locate the points of interest I was reading about.   So I decided that my book would have descriptions, photos and corresponding numbered maps.

Captain Paul’s Contemporary Guide to Lake George is a more polished compilation of the crib notes I use to regale people when out on the lake.  I hope you find it a useful companion on the water or entertaining to read at your leisure.
