Essays on defining aspects of the Catskills as set down by the incomparable Norman Van Valkenburg, author of the popular Murder in the Catskills and other mysteries starring surveyor-sleuth Ward Eastman.
Old Stone Walls: Catskills Land and Lore
About the Book
Stone walls are relics left by previous generations to record their history on the landscape of the Catskills. Those with dignity are followed confidently by land surveyors trying to solve the puzzles woven into old and faded deeds. Along they way they meet those characters who are a part of the lore of the mountains and other surveyors–some with character and some without. It’s all here in the narratives of surveyor-author Norman Van Valkenburg, who roamed these hills searching for lost corners and boundary lines and found people, vistas, and experiences worth remembering.
