Description

With passion and expertise, Nancy de Flon and Anton de Flon expose the history, infrastructure, architecture, and natural beauty of their beloved Hudson Valley. Through their photographs of an eclectic variety of buildings and stunning landscapes, this Photographic Tour puts the spotlight on the tycoons, generals, and politicians, as well as farmers, artisans, and artists, whose legacies and dreams have shaped this region's land and culture. Explore the same pastoral scenes the Hudson River School painters of the nineteenth century found so inspiring. Learn about the geological forces that shaped the valley, the Catskills, and the Adirondacks into the national landmarks they are today. Travel through time from before the American Revolution to the present. From mansions to stone Huguenot houses and Dutch farm buildings, through mountains, meadows, forests, rivers, and streams, this combination of outstanding photos, historical facts, and practical guide will serve your every travelling need.
