Overview

From the dinosaurs and the glaciers to the first native peoples and the first European settlers, from Dutch and English Colonial rule to the American Revolution, from the slave society to the Civil War, from the robber barons and bootleggers to the war heroes and the happy rise of craft beer pubs, the Hudson Valley has a deep history.

The Hudson Valley: The First 250 Million Years chronicles the Valley’s rich and fascinating history and charms. Often funny, sometimes personal, always entertaining, this collection of essays offers a unique look at the Hudson Valley’s most important and interesting people, places, and events.

From the Publisher

This is an ambitious and well-realized work. . . [David Levine’s] clarity and sense of humor make this book a treasure chest that belongs on all our bookshelves if we wish to know what these hills and shores remember.
