Synopsis: The second edition of "Grand Monadnock" contains 58 color photographs and historical prints. More than 100,000 people a year climb 3,165-foot Mount Monadnock in southwestern New Hampshire. This extraordinary, granite-top peak stands alone against a far-seeing horizon of spectacular panoramas.
Authors and photographers Julia Older and Steve Sherman guide you along the major trails and favorite sites of Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson, track the story behind the name Monadnock and let you in on the notorious World War One William Dean murder. They write also of the mountain geology, the writers and artists associated with this inspiring mountain and how others view its singular summit.
This much-loved mountain offers a fascinating cultural past as well as hiking, sightseeing, cross-country skiing and self-discovery. The mountain is a pre-eminent example of environmental protection and is known as "the people's mountain."
About the Author: Julia Older and Steve Sherman, co-authors also of "Appalachian Odyssey: Hiking the Trail from Georgia to Maine," climbed Grand Monadnock many times to train for their 2,000-mile, four-month hike of the Appalachian Trail. For "Grand Monadnock: Exploring the Most Popular Mountain in America," they hiked it many more times in every season and condition. They live within sight of this outstanding mountain.
