The Hudson: A Guidebook to the River by Arthur G. Adams



For both armchair and actual travelers, Arthur Adams has condensed his considerable knowledge of the natural river, navigation, regional history, and the architecture along the river in this book. Many excerpts from American authors provide perspectives on the valley from other eras, and Adams combines descriptions of well-known events in American history, such as Benedict Arnold's meeting with Major Andre, with the stories of ordinary people and origins of place names that deepen one's feeling for the river.

True to its name, the Hudson River Guidebook literally guides the reader through the Hudson Region. Water arises from springs in the Adirondacks. The Opalescent River provides one of the highest if not the highest tributary vantagepoints in the region. The book shows the majesty of the Great Falls of the Passaic River at Patterson and Fort Lafayette. The area below the Highlands is picturesque. The work displays the Hasbrouck House which was once the sight of George Washington's famous headquarters.

Arthur G. Adams has nurtured a lifelong interest in the Hudson River and its surrounding region. He has spent much of his life exploring its highways, byways, waterways, and foot trails from the Atlantic Coastal inlets to the Catskill and Berkshire Mountain Peaks. The Hudson Through the Years chronicles the history of the Hudson River region of New York State through five centuries, from its early inhabitants: its main Native American tribes and early Dutch and English settlers, through its current day residents. The book also includes details about the art and architecture of the region. Included in the book are data about New York's governors, political administrations, . presidents, and British sovereigns, ferry and train routes and schedules, maps and tables, and statistics for population growth over the last five centuries. Also included is a helpful selected bibliography.

It arrives to fulfill the need for a new detailed, point-by-point guide to the river from its intersection with the Atlantic to its source in the Adirondacks.Five possible routes for the traveler are given: directly up the main steamboat channel, road routes on the east and west shores, and rail routes along the east and west shores. The road routes follow the riverbanks as closely as possible and also provide excursions to the many points of historical interest and contemporary development in the river valley. Maps provide detailed guides for excursions.For both armchair and actual travelers, Arthur Adams has condensed his considerable knowledge of the natural river, navigation, regional history, and the architecture along the river in this book. Many excerpts from American authors provide perspectives on the valley from other eras, and Adams combines descriptions of well-known events in American history, such as Benedict Arnold’s meeting with Major Andre, with the stories of ordinary people and origins of place names that deepen one’s feeling for the river. Contemporary economic development is also noted, and the fluctuating economic fortunes of river towns and always changing patterns of residence and employment are noted.From the Abyssal Plain to Doodletown and Chevaux-de-Frise, past Anthony’s Nose, Burdens Iron Works, and the Saratoga Battle Field to the Hudson’s source at Lake Tear of the Clouds, this Guidebook provides practical information and enjoyable perspectives.

I traveled up the Hudson River from Manhattan to Waterford, New York and back, taking hundreds of photographs along the way. With this book in hand, I retraced the journey, learning about many things that I didn't realize at the time that I made the trip.

Very helpful and good resource for the Hudson River and the historic places along her. Great to see it still available. I enjoyed the illustrations, paintings and photos the most.

True to its name, the Hudson River Guidebook literally
guides the reader through the Hudson Region . Water arises from
springs in the Adirondacks. The Opalescent River provides one
of the highest if not the highest tributary vantagepoints in the
region. The book shows the majesty of the Great Falls of the
Passaic River at Patterson and Fort Lafayette. The area below
the Highlands is picturesque. The work displays the Hasbrouck House which was once the sight of George Washington's famous headquarters. There is a shot of the Vanderbilt Mansion.
The beautiful falls of the Mohawk at Cohoes provide a
spectacular arial shot. All-in-all the work is informative
and picturesque. This is a worthy purchase for a wide
constituency of readers. i.e. NYS historians, students,
geography buffs, environmentalists and a host of other
relevant constituencies of the Hudson region.
This book would be a goldmine for any student doing a
class project in geography, earth science, the history of NYS
or any number of assignments too numerous to list here.
