This is a unique, previously untold, story of the 25-year project to restore Bold Castle, a well-known landmark and tourist destination in the Thousand Islands. It reflects the dedication of local native, Dale Fikes. As Clerk of the Works for the Thousand Islands Bridge Authority, Fikes engineered the clean-up of Boldt Castle, built during the gilded age of northern New York. Written by award-winning author, Hope Irvin Marston and Gerald Borland, the text is enlivened with personal incidents known only to those involved.
