About this book

Since its inception in 1984, The Hudson River Valley Review has taken an eclectic and interdisciplinary approach to a region that has long been recognized for its role in American colonial history, its important contributions to American arts, letters, and architecture, its role in the economic development of the nation and its significant and ongoing contributions to American culture and history.

This collection of essays brings together eighteen of the best essays from the Review's first twenty-five years of publication. From natives and newcomers to twentieth-century leaders, the authors of these essays examine the many facets of the Hudson's rich history, distinctive regional culture, and important contributions to the development of modern America.
