General Information:
Full Name: Marty Podskoch
Marty Podskoch is a retired teacher and the author of three fire tower books: Fire Towers of the Catskills: Their History and Lore, Adirondack Fire Towers: Their History and Lore, the Southern Districts, and Adirondack Fire Towers: Their History and Lore, the Northern Districts and Adirondack Stories. Marty also writes a weekly newspaper column, "Adirondack Stories" published in five Adirondack area newspapers. He wrote two illustrated books drawn from his weekly newspaper column: Adirondack Stories: Historical Sketches and Adirondack Stories II: 101 More Historical Sketches. Marty and his wife, Lynn, raised their three children in an old farmhouse on the West Branch of the Delaware River in Delhi, New York, where he taught 7th grade reading. He became interested in fire towers after climbing Hunter Mountain in 1987. He met an old observer and set out to learn more about the history and lore of the fire towers. Purple Mountain Press then asked him to write about the history of the Catskill fire towers and the restoration project that was occurring in the Catskills. Presently, Marty Podskoch is conducting research on the Civilian Conservation Camps in the Adirondacks and Connecticut. He is keenly interested in meeting individuals who may have CCC stories to contribute to his next book. He also has three web sites: www.adirondackstories.com, www.cccstories.com, www.firetowerstories.com.
