Michael Kudish says that he “just can’t understand people who want to live in an area that’s flat. I’ve had mountains around me all my life.” And in that life he’s helped unveil the mysteries of the Catskill and Adirondack mountains.
We are celebrating a new edition of the now classic The Catskill Forest: A History (pbk., 217 pages, Purple Mountain Press, $55) as well as Kudish in the Kaatskills, a compendium of articles written by Kudish, reprinted with permission from Kaatskill Life Magazine and The Catskill Forest Association’s CFA News. (pbk., 132 pages, Michael Kudish Natural History Preserve, $30) as well the other Kudish publications from Purple Mountain, namely the 4-volume study The Mountain Railroads of New York State.
Michael Kudish is Professor Emeritus from Paul Smith’s College, where he taught for 34 years, and where a forest has been named after him. Mike was named one of the 50 Stewards of the Catskills by the Catskill Center.
