Book Description University Press of New England (UPNE), Hanover NH, 2006. Cloth. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. ix + 369 pp. NEW. Well illustrated (color). "The mountain-haunted dreams and lives of small-town New England. In the language of the area's original inhabitants, Mount Monadnock, in the southwest corner of New Hampshire, is the mountain that stands alone. This anthology, with its rich mix of original essays, historical texts, and excerpts from oral histories, celebrates the natural and More. human history of this region. Editor Howard Mansfield says that the elusive feel of one place exists in that intersection of political and family history, landscape, destiny, expectations, weather and time." An important and enjoyable book. Featuring contributions from such writers as Sy Montgomery, Ernest Hebert, Janisse Ray, Tom Wessels, Richard Ober, Jim Collins, and Jane Brox, Where the Mountain Stands Alone ranges from the formation of the region's distinctive landscape to the lives and customs of its first inhabitants, from the industrialization of the antebellum period to the collapse of both farms and mills, from the region's influence on writers and artists to the rewilding and repopulating of the twentieth century. It is a selective but richly suggestive overview of centuries of human interaction with a particular landscape. That New Hampshire bluff, as Henry David Thoreau said of Monadnock, will longest haunt our dreams.". Seller Inventory # HS11701
