Settled on the Hudson River more than 300 years ago, Nyack has a long and interesting history, a history that has always been defined by the river. The Nyacks portrays that history, with more than 200 stunning photographs from the archives of the Nyack Library. Nyack, Upper Nyack, and South Nyack lie some 25 miles north of New York City and in early days were the center for boatbuilding and shoe manufacturing. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Nyack's thriving downtown attracted residents from other parts of Rockland County. Nyack went on to become a popular destination for travelers, with several hotels and educational institutions, including a female seminary and a military academy. Nyack is also the birthplace of artist Edward Hopper and the longtime residence of actress Helen Hayes and writer Carson McCullers.

Mary Jemison was one of the most famous white captives who, after being captured by Indians, chose to stay and live among her captors. In the midst of the Seven Years War(1758), at about age fifteen, Jemison was taken from her western Pennsylvania home by a Shawnee and French raiding party. Her family was killed, but Mary was traded to two Seneca sisters who adopted her to replace a slain brother. She lived to survive two Indian husbands, the births of eight children, the American Revolution, the War of 1812, and the canal era in upstate New York. In 1833 she died at about age ninety.

Benjamin Titus Roberts (1823–1893) is best known for founding the Free Methodist Church in 1860 after his expulsion from the Methodist Episcopal Church. He was also an outspoken voice for such reform causes as the abolition of slavery, women in ministry, and farmersâ€™ rights — so much so that he played a role in the rise of the Populist Movement. Ellen Stowe Roberts (1825–1908), scion of a prominent Methodist family, shared her husbandâ€™s passion for holiness, for speaking good news to the poor, and for urban ministry. Popular Saints warmly tells the story of B. T. and Ellen Robertsâ€™s lives, recounting their critique of powerful elites and illuminating the “crisis of Methodism” that gave rise to the Free Methodist Church. Howard Snyderâ€™s detailed biography views key nineteenth-century currents and events — such as abolitionism, revivalism, womenâ€™s rights, the Civil War, and the expansion of railroads — through the lives of these two extraordinary figures, who taught a “holy populism” of simplicity, justice for the common people, and radical discipleship.
