The article focuses on how the wilderness of Hudson Valley inspired the first art movement in the U.S. It began in 1825 when a young English immigrant named Thomas Cole hiked into the northern Catskill Mountains and made sketches of wild unspoiled nature in the Kaaterskill Clove area, in what is now the Catskill Park and the domains of North-South Lake Campground. In the late twentieth century, a reawakening of interest occurred which continues to get stronger every year.
