A famous historian's long awaited last book

Kingston, City on the Hudson
By Alf Evers. From the author of "The Catskills, From Wilderness to Woodstock", which is the regional history by which all other regional histories are now measured, "Woodstock, History of An American Town", "In Catskill Country" and countless children's books, comes the first history of New York's original capital in over fifty years. More than ten years in the writing, this book was literally completed the day beloved historian, Alf Evers, died at the age of 99. He promised a readable history, one that will challange the complacency of readers and surprise historians with the exposure of the popularly held fallacies and misconceptions we have all come to accept as truth. Expected by early October - 6x9 640 pages 100 b&w photos & illustrations Hardcover $37.95 order: or email:
