Editorial Reviews

Hudson Valley Magazine
"The Catskills" is a classic Hudson Valley travelogue ... Longstreth had a reverence for nature that comes across loud and clear in poetic passages that rival John Burroughs' best work. ... Longstreth's account of his "unplanned" travels up and over and around the high peaks (and through their hamlets) ... is a fine work for armchair hikers, but it's even more fun to compare his descriptions with the Catskills today. ... The next time you have an urge to hike up Hunter or Slide or Black Dome, take the book along and revel in its enduring truths.
The New York Genealogical &Biographical Record
This is a welcome reprint ... Anyone with links to the region will enjoy Longstreth's account of the Catskill Park.
TrailWalker
Longstreth's writing offers humor and wisdom, and conveys the ineffable.
