The author of Pennsylvania Trout Streams has chronicled 44 new streams across Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey―all spots where you can still find quality angling without a crowd. Each description includes a rating, map, hatch chart, and more. Pennsylvania is world renowned for the quality of its fly-fishing&mdahs;but the state is in danger of being loved to death by its anglers. In this eagerly awaited companion volume to Pennsylvania Trout Streams, Charles Meck offers state anglers―along with those in neighboring New York and New Jersey―descriptions of 43 of his own secret streams. These are spots where you can still find blizzardlike insect hatches and catch wild and stream bred trout―in total solitude.

The untold story of the fight for the Hudson River Valley, control of which, both the Americans and the British firmly believed, would determine the outcome of the Revolutionary War.No part of the country was more contested during the American Revolution than New York City, the Hudson River, and the surrounding counties. Political and military leaders on both sides viewed the Hudson River Valley as the American jugular, which, if cut, would quickly bleed the rebellion to death.So in 1776, King George III sent the largest amphibious force ever assembled to seize Manhattan and use it as a base from which to push up the Hudson River Valley for a grand rendezvous at Albany with an impressive army driving down from Canada. George Washington and every other patriot leader shared the king’s fixation with the Hudson. Generations of American and British historians have held the same view. In fact, one of the few things that scholars have agreed upon is that the British strategy, though disastrously executed, should have been swift and effective. Until now, no one has argued that this plan of action was lunacy from the beginning.Revolution on the Hudson makes the bold new argument that Britain’s attempt to cut off New England never would have worked, and that doggedly pursuing dominance of the Hudson ultimately cost the crown her colonies. It unpacks intricate military maneuvers on land and sea, introduces the personalities presiding over each side’s strategy, and reinterprets the vagaries of colonial politics to offer a thrilling response to one of our most vexing historical questions: How could a fledgling nation have defeated the most powerful war machine of the era?George C. Daughan―winner of the prestigious Samuel Eliot Morrison Award for Naval Literature―integrates the war’s naval elements with its political, military, economic, and social dimensions to create a major new study of the American Revolution. Revolution on the Hudson offers a much clearer understanding of our founding conflict, and how it transformed a rebellion that Britain should have crushed into a war they could never win.

Excerpt from Catalogue of Books in the Mercantile Library, of the City of New York Almost the first act of the present Board was to appoint this Committee, which inne distely commenced operations. During June their President visited Cambridge and Boston, for the purpose of examining the system of cataloguing employed at Harvard College and in the public libraries of Boston; and on his return a corps of five cataloguers, under the supervision of the Librarian, went actively to work. No su ciently complete record of the accessions and losses of the Library was kept during the sixteen years since the last Catalogue. The first step was therefore to make an inventory of the Library, involving the handling of at least one hundred and fifty thousand volumes, as each book had to be dealt with at least twice. This inventory consists of over sixty thousand cards or slips, in two sets. One of these sets is alphabeted by names of Iuthors, including the titles of anonymous books. The other set contains the titles of the hooks, and is classed by subjects. These two sets of cards correspond respectively to the Alphabetical Catalogue and the Classified Index in the printed Catalogue, and there is a third set for the Novels. In preparing this inventory, permanent future economy as well as present conve nience was contemplated. The sets of cards referred to, after being copied for the printer.

Excerpt from Systematic Catalogue of Books in the Collection of the Mercantile Library Association of the City of New YorkIs publishing a sixth catalogue of the books of the Mercantile Library Association, its directors think it well to prefix a succinct account of the origin, progress, and present state of the institution.The persuasion, that to liberalize the minds of that great body of young men who form the rising hope of our active and varied commerce; to enlarge and invigorate their capacity by solid knowledge; to elevate their spirits and their morals by familiarizing their moments of leisure with whatever is fair in the actions of other times or excellent in science, was the truest method of advancing, not only their individual respectability, but their utility to others and their own ultimate success, led the clerks in general, of New-York, to set On foot, in the year 1820, the existing association.To its original formation, certain prejudices (now happily disappearing) that clung to a narrow routine and strict ignorance of everything else, as the only true resources of mercantile skill, at first opposed themselves. The impediments, however, which these could offer, were not enough to hold back the better spirit of our commercial class from an object so worthy; and the organization of the society went successfully forward, until, in 1823, it obtained the more permanent form of a corporate body.At the first opening of the institution, a collection, amounting to about seven hundred volumes, derived principally from personal donation, was found to have been assembled. In 1821 this number had risen to about a thousand volumes, and the association embraced two hundred and four members. The detailed progress of the next five years can.be but imperfectly traced, in records then rather irregularly kept. In January, 1821, however, we find the number of associates risen to four hundred and thirty-eight, and that of volumes in the collection to twenty-two hundred. A still better impulse seems to have been felt in the affairs of the association during the ensuing year; since it more than doubled its number of members before the return of its next anniversary, and added more than a thousand volumes to its library.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Andrew Goldstein delved into the world of football at age five and, through a mistake that is equal parts painful and wonderful, somehow ended up rooting for the New York Jets. Thirteen years later, he decided to write a book about it. The uplifting, disheartening, wonderful, awful, hilarious, and generally crazy experiences in the middle? They're all in the pages of this book. Growing Up Green is an attempt to shed a little bit of light on what it means to be a sports fan, and how the fan experience shapes us throughout our lives. This story will be told not through the lens of an expert, but from the perspective of a regular football fanatic who bleeds green and white. Along the way, you'll either discover or re-discover the inner workings of a sports fan's mind, and have a heck of a good time doing it. If you're a diehard, a casual fan, have the slightest bit of curiosity in what it means to be a fan, or are Andrew Goldstein's immediate friends and family, then this book is for you.

The sudden disappearance of Judge Joseph Crater nearly 75 years ago led to perhaps the most famous missing persons case of the twentieth century. Crater, a justice of New York's state Supreme Court, vanished amid political scandal. Within days, questions arose about Judge Crater's finances and his liaisons with numerous women. A public frenzy about what happened to Crater provided impetus for scrutiny of New York's Tammany Hall political machine―and ultimately for the vanishing of Tammany Hall as well. The cast of characters in this book―the first-ever serious look at the Crater case―includes Franklin D. Roosevelt, the governor who named Crater to the bench; Senator Robert Wagner, Crater's mentor, but also the leader with the most to lose from having Crater found; Al Smith, Tammany's ebbing leader and failed presidential candidate; Jimmy Walker, the rogue Mayor of New York City and the darling of Tammany Hall; and Fiorello La Guardia, the crusading reformer who finally came to power on the back of the scandals. Richard J. Tofel's Vanishing Point is a revealing look at New York as the Jazz Age gave way to the Depression, and at one of the most intriguing stories in the annals of urban America.

Summer in the City takes a clear look at John Lindsay’s tenure as mayor of New York City during the tumultuous 1960s, when President Lyndon Johnson launched his ambitious Great Society Program. Providing an even-handed reassessment of Lindsay’s legacy and the policies of the period, the essays in this volume skillfully dissect his kaleidoscope of progressive ideas and approach to leadership―all set in a perfect storm of huge demographic changes, growing fiscal stress, and an unprecedented commitment by the federal government to attain a more equal society. Compelling archival photos and a timeline give readers a window into the mythic 1960s, a period animated by civil rights marches, demands for black power, antiwar demonstrations, and a heroic intergovernmental effort to redistribute national resources more evenly.Written by prize-winning authors and leading scholars, each chapter covers a distinct aspect of Lindsay’s mayoralty (politics, race relations, finance, public management, architecture, economic development, and the arts), while Joseph P. Viteritti’s introductory and concluding essays offer an honest and nuanced portrait of Lindsay and the prospects for shaping more balanced public priorities as New York City ushers in a new era of progressive leadership.The volume’s sharp focus on the controversies of the Mad Men era will appeal not only to older readers who witnessed its explosive events, but also to younger readers eager for a deeper understanding of the time. A progressive Republican with bold ideals and a fervent belief in the American Dream, Lindsay strove to harness the driving forces of modernization, democratization, acculturation, inclusion, growth, and social justice in ways that will inform our thinking about the future of the city.Contributors: Lizabeth Cohen, Paul Goldberger, Brian Goldstein, Geoffrey Kabaservice, Mariana Mogilevich, Charles R.

We Did Everything But Win: An Oral History of the Emile Francis Era New York Rangers (1964–1976) is an entertaining account of one of the most exciting and unforgettable periods in the history of the Broadway Blueshirts as told by Francis as well as several of his players.George Grimm chronicles each season of the Francis era when “The Cat” transformed them from perennial league doormats to a team that made it to the Stanley Cup playoffs for nine consecutive seasons, including a Finals appearance in 1972. There are also chapters detailing Emile’s playing career and his hiring as general manager as well as the aftermath of his dismissal and an analysis of his tenure behind the bench and as GM. It was during those years that the National Hockey League doubled in size and the Rangers moved into a brand-new Madison Square Garden. As the popularity of the National Hockey League skyrocketed, who could forget the Rangers’ battles on the ice with Boston’s Big Bad Bruins and Philadelphia’s Broad Street Bullies and showdowns with the Montreal Canadiens and Chicago Black Hawks? All the great moments are here including a heart-stopping, triple-overtime victory in the 1971 playoffs and Vic Hadfield’s 50th goal the following season. We Did Everything But Win is a tribute to the Rangers of that era; Jacques Plante and Marcel Paille, Eddie Giacomin and Gilles Villemure, Harry Howell and Jim “The Chief” Neilson, “The Old Smoothies,” the “G-A-G Line,” and the “Bulldog Line.” It’s the story of colorful players with nicknames like “Boomer,” “Stemmer,” and “Sarge” and fan favorites such as Brad Park, Rod Gilbert, Jean Ratelle, Walt Tkaczuk. It’s all here―the highs and the lows, the inspiring victories, the devastating losses, and the funny moments along the way.
