The Heart of the White Mountains, Their Legend and Scenery [NOOK Book]

Overview

THE very flattering reception which the sumptuous holiday edition of “The Heart of the White Mountains” received on its début has decided the Messrs.

Overview

THE very flattering reception which the sumptuous holiday edition of “The Heart of the White Mountains” received on its début has decided the Messrs. Harper to re-issue it in a more convenient and less expensive form, with the addition of a Tourist’s Appendix, and an Index farther adapting it for the use of actual travellers.

One or two new maps contribute to the same end.

So far as author and publisher are concerned, that purpose is now realized.
