Manville Wakefield hardcover

A Railroad came to the Mountains! To the Mountains by Rail is a landmark in railroad history.  Written by renowned rail historian Manville B. Wakefield, the book is ground-breaking in its treatment of the details of the New York, Ontario and Western Railway, and in its exploration of Sullivan County history. The book takes the readers back to a time when the Catskill Mountains were the major destination on the East Coast, playing host to tens of thousands of visitors each summer. Wakefield has recreated this era in masterful style.  He has assembled an unusually detailed photographic record of the O&W line, the people who traveled it, and the great bygone hotels of the area.
