"If you like Frederic Church or the Hudson River School of painting, this exhibition is a must-see experience. If cannot attend the exhibition, then reading the book and looking at the color plates in it will be the next best thing. It is loaded with color plates, 112 of them that are done in an achingly sharp, high-quality manner. While the illustrations are praiseworthy, it is the paintings themselves and Carr's essays that make the book truly noteworthy."—Schenectady Gazette
