Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A small river town settled by ordinary people with no renowned citizens or spectacular events is a blue-print representing other similar river towns whose story has generally been left untold. Bush (town historian, New Baltimore) gives a historical account of a Hudson River town prior to European settlement through its current political status in the northeastern United States. From the changing landscape and the lives and deaths of its inhabitants, together with typical human events such as war, innovations, and other worldly phenomena, this account of New Baltimore offers a window into other towns all over the country that experienced a similar evolution.
