About the Book

ADVENTURES AROUND PUTNAM explores the beauty and history of Putnam County, NY and surrounding communities. Written from the perspective of a father with young children, this book offers a sampling of hikes, historic sites and family-friendly activities. For each “adventure”, the author provides a detailed description, directions, difficulty ratings, pictures, and where to find additional info. The book was inspired because the author heard too many times, “I never knew that was there.”
