Synopsis: Upstate New York is an illustrated history of the countryside in upstate New York. It takes the reader through the history and scenery of a place like no other, featuring six local towns that played an important role in the battle of Saratoga, and the turning point of the American Revolution. The reader will become acquainted with the lives and times of the people who live there now and who lived there in days gone by.

From the Inside Flap: Upstate New York: Towns That We Love is an illustrated history of the countryside in upstate New York; it is a romance about an area outside of time. It takes the reader through the history and scenery of a place like no other and features six local towns that were in existence at the same time our ancestors were fully engaged in fighting the Revolutionary War. The reader will become acquainted with the life and times of the people who live there now and who lived there in days gone by.

This book is a once-upon-a-time story about a place where many famous people grew up. Grandma Moses was born near the author's hometown of Greenwich and became well known for her paintings of Washington County, the Upper Hudson River Valley, and Vermont. Kim Gannon, the songwriter who wrote "I'll Be Home for Christmas" lived in Greenwich too, as did Susan B. Anthony, who was a prominent leader in the women's suffrage movement.

The reader may peruse through the seven chapters and thoroughly enjoy the watercolors on their own merit, but reading about the towns in upstate New York is almost like reading a fairy tale in which our nation's history was made in 1776-1777, the turning point of the American Revolution and the Battle of Saratoga. And even today, there is a sense that magical things could still happen when visiting the Schuylerville Monument, which is not far from where General Burgoyne surrendered to General Gates, and the High Rock Spring in Saratoga, which was famous for its healing mineral water.

Upstate New York: Towns That We Love is a "travel" book that talks about the whys and wherefores of the place and its colorful history rather than just listing places to eat and where to stay for the night. The entire Upper Hudson River Valley is not just a place to stay but also a remarkable landmark of historic sites and scenery. To the north lies one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world, the Adirondack Mountains. Route 87 North takes the traveler to historic Warrensburg and Lake George. Farther north on this route is the great Fort Ticonderoga on the southern edge of Lake Champlain. The list of places to see and things to do goes on and on, but this book allows the reader to make up his or her own mind as one travels along the way, with the authors as unique guides.
