BEGINNING in 1870 and lasting for the better part of five decades, the rugged North Country of New Hampshire was the scene of some of the most intensive logging in northern New England. Aiding the lumbermen in their quest to remove some of the finest virgin timber in the region were some of the area's earliest logging railroad operations.
In Logging Railroads of New Hampshire's North Country, Gove, a retired forester and longtime railroad buff, chronicles the colorful and often perilous history of the various logging rail lines that operated in the region. Based on nearly four decades of research, the book features chapters on the Wild River Railroad, the Kilkenny Lumber Company Railroad, the John's River Railroad, the Upper Ammonoosuc Railroad, and the Success Pond Railroad, among others.
