Mountain Voices: Stories of Life and Adventure in the White Mountains and Beyond by Doug Mayer, Rebecca Oreskes

Through interviews with New Hampshire notables at their homes and offices and in important places in nature, authors Doug Mayer and Rebecca Oreskes capture the truly human stories of pioneering people of the North Country. With humor, wit, and unforgettable personal style, the accounts—recorded from 1994 to the present and including historical photographs—invite readers into the lives of these important figures in White Mountain history. From the early days of AMC's high huts and trail crew work, to the U.S. Forest Service and the creation of federal wilderness areas, to world-class mountain climbing and search and rescue, each captivating profile reveals the strength and character of the human spirit.
