Review:

Ed Henry's vivid description of the geology, geography and ecology of the [Shawangunk] Ridge perfectly defines the unique ... Gunks. -- U.S. Congressman Maurice D. Hinchey

Henry ... is a fine nature writer who even manages to make sense of the confusing geology of the Gunks. -- Hudson Valley magazine, Oct. 2003

Lavishly illustrated ... this little book delivers big information about the geology, geography and ecology of the Ridge. -- Taconic Newspapers, Sept. 2003

The book features ... poetic descriptions of the mountains the author clearly loves so much. -- New York History, winter 2005

This is an excellent guide for the first-time Gunks visitor, and has some interesting tidbits for the seasoned Gunks traveler. -- New York State Conservationist, June 2004
