Life and Love in The Adirondacks Volume I

"I read the entire book in one weekend fully immersed in the town of Eagle Cove and all of its cheeky characters.  Days later I am still randomly thinking about Jasper Day.  Life and Love in the Adirondacks is poignant, amusing, and charming. This story will hook you from the start and keep you until the end.  Highly recommend!”

Life and Love in The Adirondacks

"An ordinary man living an ordinary life shares a year of his life. Each human has a story that is unique and special. Mr. Youmans brilliantly shares such a story."

The Onion Picker Book

"I ordered this book for my husband and he loved it! He will read it more than once. He has already shared it with two other fellas his age who remember the boxers and they loved it."

The Boston Globe

The Onion Picker Book

"The book nails the brutish and criminal politics of the postwar fight game. Youmans description of bouts with Boston hero, Tony DeMarco are enough to conjure vivid memories of the Gillette-sponsored “Friday Night Fights,” on which Basilio would frequently appear."
