From the Inside Flap
--------------------

Four hundred years ago, when the explorer Henry Hudson first came upon this great river, what he discovered
was a land of almost unimaginable natural splendor. Over the centuries, industry and development have taken their toll,
but today much of the region's beauty remains intact. This book is a testament to that beauty and the importance of
preserving it for future generations. Covering the river's entire length of 315 miles, from Lake Tear of the Clouds to
the New Jersey Palisades, these images showcase the dramatic terrain of bordering mountain ranges--the Adirondacks,
Catskills, Hudson Highlands, and Shawangunks--as well as the verdant pastures and rambling estates that overlook its
waters. These are some of the same vistas that inspired the great Hudson River School painters like Thomas Cole and
Asher Durand. The region's most notable attractions are pictured as well-- among them Beacon, Storm King, West Point,
Bear Mountain, Rhinebeck, Cold Spring, Nyack, Saugerties, and New York City. Featuring more than 150 large-format
photographs that track the valley in all seasons and times of day, this volume presents the glory of the Hudson River as
you've never seen it before.
