Mountain Railroads of NYS, Vol. 1 - Purple Mountain Press


Michael Kudish received his PhD at the New York State College of Environmental Science and Forestry at Syracuse. His dissertation, on the history of Catskills forests, was the beginning of a lifelong study; in 2000, Purple Mountain Press published The Catskills Forest: A History. Before his retirement, he was a professor in the Division of Forestry at Paul Smith’s College. He has written four books on the vegetation of the Adirondacks, including Adirondack Upland Flora and a number of articles on forest history of both the Catskills and Adirondacks. Now living in the Catskills, he continues to research mountain bogs and write about railroad geography.
