208 pages; 100 plates, most color. First published in 1972 when conservationists were demanding attention to the pollution and other misuse of the Hudson and its surrounds: the book, a brainchild of the Scenic Hudson Preservation Conference. Paintings are organized south to north from the Hudson's spill into New York Harbor to its beginning in the Adirondacks. Included also are reproductions of The Hudson By Daylight map, a 19th-century panorama of the Hudson. Clean throughout; tight binding.
