ISBN: 1556508913 | edition 2000 | PDF | 504 pages | 3 mb
A guide to the Catskills for the 21st-century explorer. Beautiful countryside, mountains and lakes, posh inns and cosy B&Bs, elegant restaurants and down home eateries, even animal farms for the kids, are described in detail. As with all the guides in this series, the special focus is on shopping, hotels and restaurants, with extended write-ups on each shop, hotel and eating place in the region, based on the author's personal visits. There is also coverage of ski resorts such as Hunter Mountain, the Catskills Wilderness Preserve, the mansions of Jay Gould, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt and many others, and West Point.
