Basket Moon, a picture book set principally in Hudson, was written by Mary Lyn Ray, a Fellow at Winterthur Museum, who started writing the story when she was editing a history of Taghkanic basket making entitled Legend of the Bushwhacker Basket. The book was illustrated by Barbara Cooney, two-time Caldecott Medalist and creator of the beloved Miss Rumphius, who died in March 2000, just six months after Basket Moon was published. The book tells the story of a boy's first experience accompanying his father, a Taghkanic basket maker, on a monthly selling trip to the "big city"--that is, Hudson.
The illustrations are a treat for Hudsonians since it's obvious that Cooney used actual Hudson artifacts as models for some of them.
Basket Moon, published by Little, Brown, is still in print. I recommend it--for the children in your life or just to grace your coffee table.
