Overview

In honor of the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson’s voyage of discovery on the river that now bears his name, Panorama of the Hudson River offers a twenty-first-century updating of G. Willard Shear’s long-cherished 1910 photographic survey of the river’s shorelines, tracing the Half Moon’s 1609 route from New York Harbor to present-day Albany. It also reprints the earlier edition, making it readily available for the first time in decades. Juxtaposing Shear’s photographs with those of renowned Hudson Valley photographer Greg Miller not only combines two extraordinary feats of photographic artistry, it also provides an important record of changes that have occurred along the river since the Hudson Tricentennial celebrations of 1909. Panorama of the Hudson River will interest anyone enchanted by the Hudson River’s beautiful and varied landscapes, and will also provide an excellent tool for those involved in continuing efforts to protect treasured but threatened places along its banks.
