Catskill Summers

Published by Xlibris
Summers in the country had special meaning for people who lived in the city during the 1940's and 1950's. Away from the dirt and noise, they could sit in a lawn chair and play a game of cards, or go for a walk, or pick blueberries on a lazy afternoon. Then to cap it off, they would pay fifty cents and see a real show at a "ritzy" Catskill mountain hotel. While all this was special for them, it was even more important that they bring their children out of the city to be part of the rural past they so often dreamed about. This is a story about life in a bungalow colony in the Catskill Mountains of the 1940's and 1950's. It is the experience that thousands of people from the city shared when going to the country for the summer. It represents a delicious moment in time for those families who made it out of the city and into the wonders of the Catskill countryside.
