Overview

Off the Beaten Path in Woodstock and the Greater Catskills

At a poetry gathering one evening, Michael Perkins and Will Nixon decided to walk across Woodstock, not just the modern town of busy roads but the older village of bluestone quarries, abandoned forest paths, and mountain views they had all to themselves. Walking Woodstock collects their adventures, many first published in the Woodstock Times, that ranged from the delights of finding spring flowers to the fears of a mountain rescue. Full of humor, history, friendship, nature, hikers' lore, and walkers' musings, these journeys reveal the wild heart that beats in all of us when we set forth to explore our home terrain on foot.
