Talk by Ronald Knapp and Michael O’Donnell on their book, The Gunks (Shawangunk Mountains) Ridge and Valley Towns Through Time. The Gunks, renowned for stunning landscapes, rugged topography, glistening grey-white escarpments, magnificent Victorian hotels and precipitation-fed lakes, are framed by the valleys of the Rondout Creek and the Wallkill River. While focusing on the ridge, this talk will explore the mutually beneficial economic impacts of other historical developments in the valleys. Books will be available for signing and sale.
