Walking the Hudson: From Battery to Bear Mountain is an ode to savoring the lower Hudson River by foot. The book gives information about the west and east side trails along the river from Battery Park in Manhattan to Bear Mountain in the Adirondacks and is organized into eleven different "leg" sections. In this way it is useful to the expert hiking enthusiast as well as the beginner Hudson walker alike. The reader will find a beautiful description of what each leg of the Hudson looks like, important historical sites along the way, nearby hotels and B&BS, and recreational activates. It reads as part guidebook, part history book, and part sociological treatise. If you're looking to explore the Hudson for the first time or to see the magnificent river in a new light, then Walking the Hudson is for you.--Robin Dropkin, Executive Director, Parks & Trails New York
