Exhuming the Leather Man of the Hudson Valley

by Margie Goldsmith

The Leather Man
This spring, the Leather Man will be exhumed. This mysterious hermit who tramped from town to town just after the Civil War was called the Leather Man because he wore a suit of leather sewn together from scraps. For 25 years, he walked the same 365-mile route through the New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut countryside, avoiding large towns and main roads, and completing the same circuit every 34 days.
