Not without Peril: 150 Years of Misadventure on the Presidential Range of New Hampshire (Tenth Anniversary Edition)by Nicholas Howe
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Among the most beautiful and deadly mountains in the world, Mount Washington has challenged adventurers for centuries with its severe weather. From the days when gentlefolk ascended the heights in hoop skirts and wool suits to today’s high-tech assaults on wintry summits, this book offers extensive and intimate profiles of people who found trouble on New Hampshire’s Presidential Range, from the nineteenth century through the present day.
Recognized by the Boston Globe as one of the 100 Essential New England Books, the first edition of Not Without Peril garnered acclaim from the Banff Mountain Book Festival for its gripping tales of exploration and tragedy. This tenth anniversary edition includes a new afterword from author Nicholas Howe, who offers a personal account of an evening spent at the Mount Washington Observatory while 160-mile-per-hour winds raged outside.
