I accidently discovered this book in the Rhinebeck Department Store. It is filled with incredibly beautiful photographs of Hudson River locations. If you like this part of the world, and I do, you will enjoy this book a great deal - whether it's just for your viewing pleasure or as a coffee table book to entertain people with time to browse. In these difficult economic times it's a good diversion to see something so beautiful as the photographs in this book.

Format: Hardcover
After a trip along the Hudson, I found a copy of this in a Rhode Island hotel, and I spent some time turning its pages full of lovely photos by Jake Rajs. These, as expected, are well chosen and vibrant or moody. They start at the "tear of the clouds" at the start of the river in the Adirondacks, and they follow the course of the river, and the sights along its banks, all the way to Manhattan and the harbor. Even the Tappan Zee bridge gets more than one shot, of all places...

Arthur G. Adams adds a brief afterword with a nod to the passion he shares with Rajs about exploring his beloved riparian habitat. Adams' family has long lived around the location, so his affection for the river comes across in a few pages. Most of the book's text comes from passages selected by Adams for inclusion from classic chroniclers and historic texts. (A previous reviewer scoffed at the price, but this has been reissued in an affordable smaller volume, taking up not a coffee-table surface but an end-table; it's smaller than a folded laptop.)

A preface by Joan K. Davidson adds to the volume, and her phrase for the river valley's "emphatic seasons" enhances the importance she attributes to the need for continued vigilance over this watershed's protection. Given the urban and suburban demands placed upon this river, the ability to band together among so many to keep its shores freer of blight than many other places attests to the power of the place.
