The Catskills, Sunrise from South Mountain, 1874. Creator: Samuel Valentine Hunt Featured Image

The Catskills, Sunrise from South Mountain, 1874. Creator: Samuel Valentine Hunt

The Catskills, Sunrise from South Mountain, 1874. The Catskill Mountains, part of the larger Appalachian Mountain range, in southeastern New York State, USA. Clustering closely together, these isolated mountains, to which the early Dutch settlers gave the name of "Catskills", approach within eight miles of the river, and, like an advanced bastion of the great rocky wall, command the valley for a considerable distance, and one of the most striking features in the landscape. On the western side, they slope gradually toward the central part of the State of New York, running off into spurs and ridges in every direction. On the eastern, however, they rise abruptly from the valley to a height of more than four thousand feet, resembling, when looked at from the river, a gigantic fist with the palm downward, the peaks representing the knuckles, and the glens and cloves the spaces between them'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. II, edited by William Cullen Bryant. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1874]

The Spouting Horn in a Storm, 1872. Creator: W. J. Linton Featured Image

The Spouting Horn in a Storm, 1872. Creator: W. J. Linton

The "Spouting Horn" in a Storm, 1872. Rocks on the coast of Maine, north eastern USA: a wide chasm in the cliff, which extends down to the water and opens to the sea through a small archway below high-water mark. At low water the arch may be reached over the slippery, weed-covered rocks, and the chasm within ascended by means of uncertain footholds in the sides of the rocky wall. A few adventurous tourists have accomplished this feat, but it is a very dangerous one. If the foot should slip on the smooth, briny rock, and the adventurer glide into the water, escape would be almost impossible. The waves would suck him down into their depths - now toss him upon rocks, whose slippery surface would resist every attempt to grasp, then drag him back into their foaming embrace'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. I, edited by William Cullen Bryant.
