150 Years of Misadventure on the Presidential Range of New Hampshire by Nicholas Howe Boston: Appalachian Mountain Club Books, 2000. Paperback, 304 pages, 16 pages of black and white photographs. The Mount Washington "must read" of the year. Jackson, NH author Nick Howe -- well known for his Yankee Magazine article "Killer Mountain" (aka "Fatal Attraction") -- has investigated nineteen of the more than one hundred fatal (and near fatal) accidents on the Presidential Range, and offers the fruits of his research for our benefit. From the days of Frederick Strickland -- Mount Washington's first fatality, in 1849 -- to the present, Howe's studied prose gives us the opportunity to learn from the bad luck, and bad judgement, of others. There's a lot of Mount Washington's history packed into these pages! Soft Cover
