The Preserve: A Centennial History 1904-2004 was privately published in a 2,000-copy edition in August 2004. The book stemmed from James Zug's masters thesis from Columbia. Professionally designed, it is a 312-page, four-color, coffee-table book, with hundreds of archival photographs, endnotes, an appendix and index. Besides the history of this unique summer community in the Pocono mountains of northeast Pennsylvania, it covers the history of Quakerism, the logging and ice harvesting industry and Pocono tourism.
