Product Description

The two essential volumes of the grand, sweeping history of the storied region where America was truly born and came of age, now available in a handsome boxed set

The History of the Hudson River Valley, first published in two authoritative and handsome volumes, is now available as a deluxe boxed set to create the complete portrait of this fascinating and culturally important region.

In these two expansive volumes, Vernon Benjamin follows the valley as it transforms into the birthplace of art, literature, innovation, and revolutionary fervor. Tracing the valley's history from the Revolutionary War, the emergence of great estates including that of the Rockefellers, the rise of distinguished politicians including Franklin Delano Roosevelt, all the way through post-9/11, The History of the Hudson River Valley Boxed Set will take a place of honor on the shelves of museums, gift shops, cultural institutions, and history buffs.

Richly illustrated and scrupulously researched, Vernon Benjamin's magisterial and all-inclusive history will be the definitive text for years to come, and the lavish boxed set of his two complete volumes is the perfect gift for those interested in the region's history.

With 48 color and 64 b&w images
