Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Clyne's wealth of knowledge permits her to pass along many bits and pieces that any reader with even a scintilla of curiosity is likely to find irresistible." — Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post

"Well- organized guidebooks which double as historical narratives-Clyne's chapters are short but full of life, offering stories and adventures that speak to her diverse yet readable style." — Hudson Valley Magazine

"Both books [Hudson Valley Tales and Trails, Hudson Valley Faces and Places] provide a unique perspective on some of the state parks, historic landmarks, and legendary individuals who have come together to make up the vast history of the Hudson Valley region." -Hudson River Valley Review
