and his own initiative to acquire a 162,248-acre tract straddling the Hudson River, which they dubbed Livingston Manor.

As inspiration, they can look to a recent book by photographer Pieter Estersohn, Life Along the Hudson, The Historic Country Estates of the Livingston Family, for insight into what might be the longest view in modern American history. Robert Livingston, known as the Elder, emigrated to America in 1673, and used his wife’s connections and his own initiative to acquire a 162,248-acre tract straddling the Hudson River, which they dubbed Livingston Manor. There, he and his descendants lived in what Estersohn describes as a semi-feudal state.

Ever since Henry Hudson first discovered and explored it in 1609, the river named for him has played an important role in American history. This book provides a picture of life along the Hudson at every step of the way, including facts and fables, legends as well as living realities. Softcover, 272 pp with Bibliography & Index.

This is a book about the Hudson, its origins, its sloops and boats, the history of the steamboat coming, the decline of the clear water, the trade along the Hudson, Henry Hudson's discovery, basically if it is about the river, it is in this book. It has a couple of frustrating paragraphs about Cornelius Vanderbilt and how he became insanely rich..ahhh, the virtues of monopoly. What it does not cover: everyday life, politics. It barely scrapes against topics like the Erie Canal or Indians or farming.

While the illustrations are good for the most part, author Keller assumed we know much about the Hudson already. At times this reads like a textbook. I suggest you look elsewhere.

I had this book as a child and it helped me to really like history. The original book was lost so I had to replace it!!
