Overview

Celebrated as the American Rhine, the majestic Hudson River flows more than three hundred miles from its source high in the Adirondack Mountains to New York Harbor. Lining its banks are the marks of the four hundred years of history that have transpired since Henry Hudson piloted the Half Moon north from New Amsterdam in 1609. Today the river and the surrounding valley are protected as a National Heritage Area by the National Park Service. This stunning photographic journey explores the Hudson River's historic riverfront towns, stately mansions, public parks, and pristine wilderness. The images follow the course of the river and are paired with writings and poetry by such distinguished writers as Washington Irving, Charles Dickens, and Robert Caro. First published in a deluxe edition in 1996, this unique presentation is now accessible to all who admire the beauty and power of this magnificent landscape.
