Detailed Product Description
Boston, 1922, 1st ed, 146 pp, b/w photos. TEG. Illustrated from photographs by Herbert W. Gleason. Dark green cloth, mapped endpapers. Covers are Fine, pages clean and unmarked. Dust jacket is age yellowed, and has tape marks but is not chipped or soiled. The book is utterly Fine.

The book is a history and legends of Mount Monadnock.

Mount Monadnock, 3165 feet, is a frequently hiked peak in southern New Hampshire, and is one of the easiest ways to get above timberline in the eastern USA. It was written about by Emerson and Thoreau, and the word Monadnock is now the generic name for a bare mountain.

The common belief is that the mountain was denuded of vegetation by the continental glacier.  But now the internet tells us that it was covered in trees until the early settlers burned the forest to clear land for pasture, and to drive away some vicious wolves that came out at night and liked to eat bad little children.

In the 1960s I worked in a climbing shop in Cambridge, and the cynical older lady who also worked there used to call the main trail on Monadnock the 'orange peel trail.' The mountain is beloved by all hikers in the Bay State or Granite State.
