Handy Guide to the Catskill Mts. and Hudson River

The reprint of this classic by Ernest Ingersoll begins with a brief account of the geologic origins of the river and a comprehensive history of its discovery, exploration and settlement. Included are many quotations from such well-known chroniclers of life in the Hudson Valley as Washington Irving and John Burroughs. The first chapter alone should be required reading for all Hudson Valley residents and, in fact, has been used as a supplementary text in New York State history courses.
