About this title

From Library Journal:

The last comprehensive history of Greene County, which borders on the Hudson River in the Catskills of upstate New York, appeared in 1884. The author of this new history is a curator of collections at the National Museum of Racing in Saratoga Springs and a native of the area. Not exactly chronological, his history is divided into 47 topical chapters, such as "Land," "Schools," "Emigration," etc. Although not labeled as such, there are three broad sections: prehistory and Colonial, 19th century, and 20th century. Though individual chapters aren't comprehensive, which would require a much lengthier book, each chapter hits the highlights of its topic. The lack of consistent chronology is somewhat confusing but detracts little from the overall work. There are many photographs, but the book could use a good map. The reader gets a feel for Greene County, its towns, people, and history. This work will be of local interest and a worthy addition to regional county collections.

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
