“Reveals the beauty and wonder of one of America’s most familiar yet least appreciated waterways and shorelines.”—Ruth Messinger, former Manhattan borough president Cy Adler authored the first complete guide to walking from the southern tip of Manhattan at Battery Park all the way up to Bear Mountain near West Point. With all the new changes to the West Side of Manhattan since that guide was published, Walking the Hudson, the new and fully revised guide to this fabulous route, will be much appreciated by walkers, history buffs, and anyone who wants to experience this great area up close and under their own power. The route is nicely broken into segments of 2–9 miles each so one can walk as little or as much of the route as desired at a time. The average walker can finish the entire route in two to four days.

TRUE ACCOUNT OF A SAILOR CASTAWAY ON A DESERT ISLAND FOR "UNNATURAL ACTS" & LEFT TO GOD'S MERCY. In 1725, a sailor aboard a Dutch East Indiaman was forcibly marooned on Ascension Island. Accused of unnatural acts, the man, Jan Svilt, kept a journal of his fight for life on the dry, deserted island in the south Atlantic. Set against a background of puritanical & avaricious Holland, exotic Batavia, Capetown--the Tavern of the Seven Seas--& the harsh environment of Ascension, this book tells the story of Jan Svilt & his fellow servants of the Dutch East India Company, the most powerful & ruthless multinational the world has ever known. Svilt's officers felt that his affection for his ward Bandino would bring the wrath of God down on the Dutch fleet--as it had on Sodom. Yet the company offered slave prostitutes to its men in Capetown & Batavia, the lush capital of their Spice Islands empire. "The story is absolutely fascinating. I couldn't put the book down..."--Martin Mitchell, After Dark. "Charming & harrowing...special..."--Ruth Cavin, Two Continents Publishing. "THE QUEER DUTCHMAN is a book with an impact not unlike that of Defoe's Robinson Crusoe... " says a Christopher Street review. An enormous hellfire & brimstone audience awaits THE QUEER DUTCHMAN'S arrival, to judge from the remarks of the Episcopal Bishop of New York, the Rev. Paul Moore, who wrote, "It reads like a novel...This is an important & fascinating book." Bishop Moore is an author & prominent theologian at St. John the Divine.
