A new large hardback book brought to you from the staff of

Shay Book Update, April 2018, Rick Henderson,

The sudden closing of Timber Times is a devastating setback and we looked elsewhere… .

I am not sure how many of you have published a 750 page history book; those that have do have a better understanding about the required research. It is not about one company in one location, it is about the history of all Shays used worldwide; 2768 Shays with over 4800 owners in over 2800 separate locations, all of which has taken time to verify and correct.

The 488 page, 1971 Shay book had 1200 to 1400 errors, which we have been working on constantly to correct for over 20 years now.

Having previewed the final layout of new book, I can assure you that no one should be disappointed with the work.
