TRAVEL BACK IN TIME AND VISIT LOUISA MAY ALCOTT’S ORCHARD HOUSE 

“I want to do something splendid…
Something heroic or wonderful that won’t be forgotten after I’m dead…
I think I shall write books
.” Louisa May Alcott

Yes, she fulfilled her goal. Did you know Little Women would never have been written if Louisa had taken the advice of another publisher, James T. Fields, “Stick to your teaching, you can’t write,” he told the would-be novelist and then loaned her $40 for classroom supplies. “Being willful,” Louisa recounts in her journal, she had a ready reply for Fields, “ I won’t teach, and I can write, and I’ll prove.”

If you’re a lover of legends, storytelling, and nature you’ll find that the Catskills and the Hudson River Valley offer something for all your interests. Fodor says it best, “Rising between the Hudson Ricer to the east and the upper Delaware and Susquehanna rivers to the south and west, the Catskills-called Oneteora, or “land in the sky”, by the Algonquians and “these fairy mountains” by Washington Irving-are among the most visited, written about, and painted mountain ranges in the country.
