The Book & Where to Buy It…
The book ADVENTURES AROUND PUTNAM, Volume 1 explores the beauty and history of Putnam County, NY and surrounding communities. Written from the perspective of a father with young children, this book offers a sampling of hikes, historic sites and family-friendly activities. For each “adventure”, the author provides a detailed description, directions, difficulty ratings, pictures, and where to find additional info. The book was inspired because he heard too many times, “I never knew that was there.”
The book can be ordered directly from the publisher here. It is available in softcover ($15.99), hardcover ($20.99) and an e-book version($9.99). Select local retailers carry the book, including the Southeast Museum, the Putnam County Historian’s Office in Brewster and the Putnam History Museum in Cold Spring. It is also available during slideshows/lectures given at local libraries, historical societies and other venues.
