Burned by the British and rebuilt by a formidable grande dame in the midst of the Revolutionary War, the great house known as Clermont is full of stories of daring escapes, of world-altering inventions, of untold wealth and of struggles during the Great Depression. Clermont brings to life this important Hudson River estate and the Livingstons, a family intimately associated with the founding and development of the United States.
Ilustrated with more than 100 dazzling color photographs, Clermont offers an exacting, yet compact history, a guide to the rooms of the house and a timeline of noteworthy events in the history of Clermont-contrasted with events in the rest of the world.
