Esterita "Cissie" Blumberg.

". . .a hug for keeping the Catskills alive with this fine book." Red Buttons
"This book is fascinating. . .not only historically accurate. . .but warm, touching and beautifully entertaining." Jackie Mason

With unfailing warmth and humor Cissie Blumberg brings to life the struggles and achievements of two generations of Catskill Mountain hotelkeepers whose devotion to pleasing their city guests became legendary. Her book affords a chance to relive the region's heyday and to look behind the scenes at what made Sullivan and Ulster Counties the nation's largest, most bustling resort area with over 500 hotels and countless bungalow colonies and camps. Esterita Blumberg is a second-generation hotelkeeper and newspaper columnist who lectures widely on the Catskill experience. 293 pages, illus., 6 x 9, paper $19.50 0-935796-80-0
