Inland Passage takes readers on a tour of the Northeast, revealing the natural history of the waterways and waterfronts that make up these popular cruising grounds. The book also focuses on rare boats, their owners, and the many people from boatyards to museums who work to preserve them. Reading this book is like riding the waves with the author as he sails the major waterways from Cape May to Lake Ontario and the Thousand Islands on the Saint Lawrence River, the mountain lakes of the Adirondacks, the Erie Canal, the Hudson River, and Lake Champlain.
