“The Catskills are a well watered mountainland compounded of Cooper’s tales and the Psalms of David, deep forests and green pastures, living heights and still waters. There are no jagged peaks, no lava flows, no vast sterilities of sand or ice. The holy of holies, however, has always been a quiet place. Let sublimity stun.”
--- The Catskills, T. Morris Longstreth.
