Laura Rice, chief curator at the Adirondack Museum, speaks with Andy Flynn about "Hough’s American Woods," a 19th-century book of thinly sliced wood samples published in Lowville, N.Y.
“We are looking at a publication by Romeyn Beck Hough called ‘Hough’s American Woods,’” Rice said. “Hough was an expert in forestry from Lowville.
