About the Author:

Alf Evers was born in New York and brought up on a farm in Ulster County. As a boy, one of his favorite activities was listening to the tales of old-timers. He went to school in New Paltz, and attended Hamilton College and the Arts Student League. Among his varied occupations have been farming, landscape gardening, creating greeting card verses-and by no means least, writing over fifty children's books. He has also contributed many articles to newspapers and to the New York Conservationist, was on the editorial board of New York Folklore Quarterly, and was vice president of the New York State Folklore Society and town historian of Woodstock.

Review:

“Fascinating. . . . lively and informative.”
- American Historical Review

“[Evers's] history is one of progress, but more than that, it is the story of individuals who peopled the land, who worked, fought, succeeded and failed. . . . Evers controls his material with a fine literary grace much to be envied.”
- New York History

“Well researched. . . . This book is a must-read.”
- Hudson Valley Magazine
