Benjamin’s book chronicles the valley’s development from Native American homeland to revolutionary battlefield and beyond. After being settled by Europeans, the Hudson River Valley developed a vital colonial trading post in Manhattan while retaining the native beauty that inspired artists from James Fenimore Cooper to Thomas Cole. Wealth from Manhattan flowed north to the flourishing valley, creating a cultural renaissance of art, literature, and architecture.
