In 1848, farmer Peter Ramsey sold part of his land to the Paterson and Ramapo Railroad for a right-of-way and a station. The Ramsey family had been local landholders since the 1740s, and the railroad timetables called the stop Ramsey's Station. A town developed around the station, and Main Street, which bisected the railroad tracks, became a bustling hub of commerce that supported a growing population. Hotels, general and specialty stores, blacksmithshops, and other businesses offered goods and services to the residents of this center of rural life. Ramsey's Station became the shipping point for strawberries grown throughout the area, making it the nation's strawberry capital until the late 1800s. The fields are gone, but photographs and stories of that era are included in Ramsey, many published here for the first time. Discover Ramsey's past and the pride felt by generations who have called Ramsey their home.

The Chasm Crossed

The Chasm Crossed is about my personal spiritual journey through various schools of thought and training beginning with an early exposure to the wilds and beauty of nature in the back woods of Nova Scotia, thence to an Episcopal preparatory school, Hindu meditation techniques, a Catholic monastery, Zen meditation training, becoming a missionary in the Christian Church, and later to personal inner and outer teachers. I have always been one of those individuals compelled to reach out beyond the confines of what we see, feel, hear, taste, or smell into the area of the unknown and unprovable which has been, in the past, the rather exclusive domain of religion, spiritualiy, and mysticism. No matter what "school" of thinking or beliefs I found myself learning within, the boundaries of each school sooner or later became too limiting for my eternally questioning mind. I did, however, keep track of my thoughts, contemplations, and experiences during that 35-year period and wrote them down, sometimes as poetry, sometimes as prose, and sometimes as an entire book such as is Soul And Man. This book is a story of the journey itself without a lot of theory or contemplative thought.
