Editorial Reviews

Hudson Valley magazine
Henry ... is a fine nature writer who even manages to make sense of the confusing geology of the Gunks.
New York History
The book features... poetic descriptions of the mountains the author clearly loves so much.
New York State Conservationist
This is an excellent guide for the first-time Gunks visitor, and has some interesting tidbits for the seasoned Gunks traveler.
Taconic Newspapers
Lavishly illustrated ... this little book delivers big information about the geology, geography and ecology of the Ridge.
