    A wondrous read!

    I have not been able to put this book down since my finance purchased it for me three weeks ago. Sanderson's account of the early history of Manhattan is truly remarkable. I am a native Manhattanite oft thought of as a country boy stuck in a city body. This book explains why. Manhattan, in its roots, is a majestic tapestry of trees, ponds, streams, bogs, grasslands, fauna and floral. It was as abundant in its diverse ecosystems as is Brooklyn in its immigrant populations. It was every bit as wild with birds and bees buzzing and bears and wolves howling as it is today with young singles in Murray Hill pining after each other in the local bars and Wall Street yuppies crowing at the sound of the opening bell. Sanderson's prose is elegant, weaving history lessons and anecdotal snippets of information into an elaborate portrait of Mannahatta's lush landscape. He brings this lost world to life with clarity in non-judgmental fashion- a remarkable work.

    A truly unforgettable experience; you will never look at Manhattan in the same way again.

    Everyone with anything to do with New York should have this book

    Manahatta is one of the too few books which arouses us to see things around us we pay so little attention to. Don't simply read it. It is to be absorbed, relished, shared. The imagery is nothing short of stunning. The text is concise, revealing and clear. It is book to sit with and page through again and again and again. Its heavy paper and construction is designed for frequent use by many sets of hands and durable for passing on to others. To relegate it to a bookshelf or coffee table would be shameful.
