The first history of Woodstock, told by renowned painter and herbalist, Anita Miller Smith. She begins her story in the time of the Native Americans, and takes it up through the glassmaking era, the Down-Rent War, the founding of the Byrdcliffe and Maverick colonies of the early 1900s, World Wars I and II, and the development of the internationally known center for the arts that flourishes to this day. Based on extensive research of local records and countless interviews with fellow artists, farmers and townspeople, the book is filled with local lore and told with a sense of humor as well as a reverence for the special place that is Woodstock. It includes an introduction by former president of the Woodstock Historical Society, Alf Evers.
The new art book edition incorporates close to 200 images (art reproductions and photos of Woodstock personalities and events) as well as seven maps, an illustrated author’s biographical timeline, a complete set of endnotes, a bibliography, a list of illustrations and a much-expanded index.
