Event Description

Book signing with author Roy Reehil features new title, Adirondack Adventures: Bob Gillespie and Harvey Dunham on French Louie’s Trail.

New York State regional author and publisher Roy E. Reehil will be signing copies of his books, including his newest release, on Saturday December 1st at Adirondack Art in Barneveld, from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. Adirondack Adventures was recently published by Reehil’s company, The Forager Press, and was co-authored by William Jay O’Hern, another experienced and accomplished author of local and Adirondack history. The two previously joined forces on another book, Under an Adirondack Influence: The Life of A.L. Byron-Curtiss.

With this collaboration, the authors investigate what inspired Harvey Dunham to write his classic book, Adirondack French Louie. What was it like to camp, fish and backpack deep into the Adirondacks a century ago? Find the answers to these questions in the extraordinary photo-journals and biographies of Harvey Dunham and his friend and mentor Bob Gillespie. Travel by train to Beaver River and then north along the Red Horse trail in 1919. Wander into French Louie's old haunts along the West Canada Creek in 1924. Outfitted with tall leather boots, felt caps, canvas tents and pack baskets they journey to remote mountain ponds, fill their creels with trout and share laughs and fireside stories.

Dozens of maps are included, and over 100 never before published period photographs accompany the narrative, many of which will be shown in a running slide show during the book signing event. Adirondack Art is located at 8211 State Rt 12 in Barneveld. For more information, call 888-890-8815, or visit
