"Not long after coming to live within view of the beautiful Hudson River I discovered a book of tales entitled Myths and Legends of Our Own Land, by Charles M. Skinner. The first volume of this once-popular collection contains sundry legends of the Hudson and its Hills. So enchanted was I by these fanciful tales I decided many of them should be kept alive by being retold in more modern idiom and with some embellishment. Then, to the stories found in Skinner, I added nine of my own making, drawing freely from New York folk and Indian lore, from literature, from history and, of course, from imagination." - author's note.
