Nature chose to endow New Hampshire with an infinite variety of lakes and ponds, almost inexhaustible in resources and unlimited in beauty. Each lake holds its own fishing secrets, curving nooks, jagged rocks, and intricate shoreline. For generations, the lakes and ponds have wielded their magnetic force,attracting thousands of residents and visitors in every season of the year. Lakes and Ponds of the Granite State invites you to explore the many wonders of these charmed places. You will see the sun glancing off the wind-flecked surface, hear the breeze rustle the shoreward-bending trees, feel the coolness of the water, and eye a prized trout or two. You will encounter not only those lakes that come to mind first—Winnipesaukee, Sunapee, Squam, and Newfound—but nearly one hundred others, including Dublin and Spofford and the breathtaking Gloriette Lake.

This romantic reflection contains adventures of years past, memories to be recaptured, fish yet to be caught. Author Bruce Heald—historian, educator, and author or eight other Images of America books—has assembled some two hundred rare pictures and maps. Many of the photographs have never before been published and have been generously loaned by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department to be shared with all who enjoy the out-of-doors and the sport it offers to everyone who lives in or comes to visit the Granite State.
