Overview
The White Mountain National Forest and Great North Woods have been described as "nature's mammoth museum." This is a land of many lakes and rivers, mountains and waterfalls, and pristine natural splendor, abundant with historic charm. The White Mountain National Forest was established by presidential proclamation in 1918. It owes its existence to the passage of the Weeks Act of 1911, which enabled the federal government to purchase land and establish a national forest in New Hampshire's White Mountains. It is one of the most visited natural sites in the country, and tourists from all over the world make seasonal visits to this recreational haven. This book takes the reader on a historical journey through the national forest, including the majesty and grandeur of the Presidential Range, Great Gulf Wilderness, Pemigewasset Wilderness, and Sandwich Range Wilderness, as well as Franconia Notch, Pinkham Notch, Crawford Notch, and Great North Woods.
