Combining text and dozens of illustrations, The Shawangunk Mountains traces the broad outlines of the region's natural and human history - from the Ice Age to the suburban age, and from wilderness to nature preserve. The book focuses on the 20-mile section of the Shawangunk ridge most familiar and accessible to visitors, including the Mohonk Trust Preserve, the Mohonk resort, Minnewaska State Park, the Minnewaska resort, and Ice Caves Mountain. Includes an Index. "Nowhere else within a day's reach of the [New York] City is there any comparable natural area." - National Park Service
