Charleston, SC: Arcadia Publishing, (2005). 
Octavo, softbound (stiff, slick, photo. illus. wrappers), 128 pp. Very Good, with neat former-owner inscription. From lower cover: Woodstock Revisited is an invitation to do what people have been doing for over 200 years: take another look at Woodstock. The summer visitors of the 19th century and the artists and weekenders of the early 20th century began the trend of exploring the Woodstock area. Eventually, many who revisited Woodstock time and again decided to pull up roots and make this small upstate New York town their permanent home. In today's world, Woodstock has become a refuge for a new generation of people looking of a balance between the rural, physical landscape of Woodstock and the benefits of nearly metropolitan areas. Janine Fallon-Mower continues to pursue er passion for preserving stories about Woodstock and the people who have lived here. In Woodstock revisited, she has put faces to many of the names residents have been reading about over the years. She sought out and interviewed new contacts and borrowed pictures from family scrapbooks and albums. She also borrowed images from the Woodstock Historical Society and the Woodstock Library, for which she has served as a trustee for the past five years.

I'll bet is still is and...I would prove it. And she did, launching herself and her skeptical companion on a series of explorations through all five boroughs of the fabled city. Not for them the beaten track: They braved Bellevue Hospital at night, accompanied New York garbage to its final resting place, blew their minds at such instutitions of higher learning as the Atlas Barber School, the International Bartenders School, and Miss de Vores School of Charm for black girls. They visited His Eminence at the Archdiocese, His Honor at Gracie Mansion, and The World of Darkness at the Bronx Zoo. They went to parties, museums, libraries, to homes of outrageous eccentricity, to Puerto Rican markets, and to Thanksgiving Dinner at a Salvation Army Center. They saw the silent gold at the Federal Reserve Bank....
