Experience first-hand the unparalleled year-round beauty and charm of this region, spanning from the magical snowy mountaintops of the Adirondacksto the glass and steel of Manhattan. In over 200 breath-taking photographs, The Hudson River follows the course of this great natural beauty, exploring its picturesque banks, historic riverfront towns and stately old mansions, and magnificent public parks and wilderness. Paired with these images are inspired writings by 19th- and 20th-century authors such as Washington Irving and Robert Caro. The source of the mighty Hudson is a small misted pond high atop Mount March in the heart of Adirondack Park: Lake Tear of the Clouds. Flowing more than 300 miles before reaching the Atlantic Ocean, the Hudson River is truly the main artery of New York State. It has witnessed four centuries of transformation in New York, from early English and Dutch trading settlements and mansions of the Guilded Age to the skyscrapers of the world's greatest city.
