He grew up a "mountain rat" in the Catskills where his mother worked as a chef, his father in various resort occupations; Brown himself had numerous jobs. His visits as an adult to his old haunts reveal a changed emotional and social landscape. Warm and poignant memories of a bygone place and time, the Borscht Belt of the 1950s, fill this ological study. I loved the book and tell people about it. This brings back great memories for me and for the generation that went to and worked in the Catskills.

About book: Rule If I'm going to murder a half dozen people somewhere, I better understand that place. So, given that I'm working on an upcoming book set in a bungalow colony, I picked this one u. he Jewish Catskills were an interesting phenomena where New York Jews settled the mountains and filled them with summer resorts. That's pretty useful if a lot of the existing places put "NO HEBREWS" on their brochures. The author did a lot of work in his younger years in the area, so he's got a feel for the history, culture, and atmosphere

If you are a baby boomer or older and ever went to the Catskill Mountains, then this book is a must-read. Having gone to the Catskill's as a child to visit my grandparents who stayed there during their summers, this book brought incredible and fantastic memories back to life. The author knows the Catskills like the palm of his hand. His knowledge of the Catskill Mountains is vast, insightful, touching and funny. This is a lost period in time that the book memorializes so that this time in history may continue to live on in our hearts and minds. Again, a must-read! I gave this book to my older sister as a gift and she said that "this book is a treasure". Younger generations may find this interesting also. Thank you to the author for writing this! I just happened to be researching the Catskill Mountains on-line and pleasantly stumbled upon this book! What a find!

I got this book for my husband who grew up in the Catskills. He waited tables at a large hotel and really related to this book.

I grew up in the Catskills. I worked as a caddy and lifeguard at Grossingers, showed movies at dozens of small bungelow colonies, and worked with my Dad (he was an electrician) at many hotels in Swan Lake (the Fieldston and Swan Lake Hotel. I also got to see some of the shows and particularly remember Jackie Mason hitting on my high school classmates. My most impressive experience was caddying, when I was around 15 years old, in a group with Mickey Mantle, Whitey Ford and Roger Maris. This book cover it all along with many other historical chapters that bring many memories back.

Recollection of times spent with my family were brought back to life. Having married into the Siegel family that owned several hotels in the Swan Lake area, including the Commodore and the hotel my inlaws sold to the Dinnersteins; and the author having worked at the Commodore brought back many years of my youth. There is nothing so gratifying as to have someone write of part of your life, and this is What Mr. Brown has done. To go back even further, I remember playing with a small four piece "orchestra" at a place in Monticello, called Skliars - that was 64 years ago. What wonderful memories!.
I was born and raised in the Catskills, grew up on a chicken farm, and worked in resort hotels during my teens. I always thought this was a very special experience, and now Phil Brown's book brings it back with wonderful detail and confirms my feelings about how special it all was. This book is not only about Catskills culture; it is also about Catskills economics, and explains quite vividly how hard people worked to make the Catskills experience enjoyable for those who came for the summer.
