Some years ago I began driving up the old state highway connecting Manhattan and Montreal along the eastern border of New York State. The road had always interested me, not only because I had lived along it at various points in my life, but also because I thought it might teach me something about how upstate New York had come to look the way it does. A few years later, I organized my notes and photographs into a narrative describing some of what I had seen and how it had affected my life and that of my family. The book was published by the Quantuck Lane Press, with the help of a grant from Furthermore.
“This is a haunting and insightful work that transcends the picturesque to approach the profound.”
