"JUST AS A a good topographic map shows the dips and folds of the land, and the little-known place names, and every house and rivulet and dead end dirt road,” writes Richard Ober in his forward to this amazing anthology, “so this book brings into sharp relief the multi-dimensional human and natural landscape of the North Country. History. Geography. Culture. Art. Work. Play. Hope. Despair. It’s not sentimental about the region’s stunning beauty, and it doesn’t flinch from the reality of a boom-and-bust economy. It is, in short, a collection worthy of the singular place it chronicles so well.”
In original essays written by nearly 50 New Hampshire journalists, storytellers, historians, archaeologists, teachers, and outdoorsmen, Beyond the Notches records the complex story of this intriguing area and details the importance of the integral relationship between the people and the land here. Illustrated with six original paintings introducing each section of the book, plus 170 color and black & white photos and illustrations throughout, this beautiful volume should be on the shelves of every reader who loves the New Hampshire mountains and enjoys the history, beauty, people, and arts of this unique region.
