A well-written introduction to the settlement of the Hudson River Valley by the Dutch, as they migrated north up the Hudson from New York. The book offers an indepth investigation of adapted Dutch building styles, architecture and materials in and around Dutchess, Ulster and Rhinebeck counties. The inclusion of family names and historic figures is beneficial to any reader interested in the geneology of Hudson River inhabitants.
