Named, “Required Reading”, by the New York Post, Rutherfurd celebrates New York in a rich and engrossing saga through more than three centuries of history from it’s humble beginnings as a tiny Indian fishing village, the arrival of Dutch and British merchants, the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the excesses of the Gilded Age, the explosion of immigration during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, World War II, the near death of the City in the 1970’s and the rebirth of the 1990’s, and finally the breathtaking and tear filled experience of the attacks of 9/11.
