Frances F. Dunwell presents a rich portrait of the Hudson and of
the visionary people whose deep relationship with the river
inspires changes in American history and culture. Lavishly
illustrated with color plates of Hudson River School paintings,
period engravings, and glass plate photography, The Hudson captures
the spirit of the river through the eyes of its many admirers. It
shows the crucial role of the Hudson in the shaping of Manhattan,
the rise of the Empire State, and the trajectory of world trade and
global politics, as well as the river's influence on art and
architecture, engineering, and conservation.
