Description
The "heart of New Hampshire," Franconia Notch is a 6,000-acre region surrounding a pass in the White Mountains, and has been a summer resort and tourist destination since the 19th century. In 1923 a fire destroyed the Profile House grand hotel, and when the owners decided against rebuilding, lumber companies eagerly began to evaluate the local timber stands. But efforts to save the wilderness soon galvanized under the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests, with spirited support from the New Hampshire Federation of Women's Clubs; as Kimberly Jarvis relates in this detailed account, their campaign culminated in the creation of what is today Franconia Notch State Park.

"The history of this era of timber barons and conservationists, of politicians and tourists, of grand hotels and stagecoaches, is described in delightful detail.... [The book] is both a history of the development of the White Mountains and primer on forest management."Milford Cabinet (New Hampshire)
