The Illustrated History

Working hard on printing by early ???

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

Shay Book Update, Aug 2017, Rick Henderson,

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

I am not sure how many of you have published an 800 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 almost 20 years now.

Having preview copies of 90% of the new book in hand, I can assure you that no one should be disappointed with the work, especially with the photo gallery.
