A LITTLE more than a century ago, in the watershed of northern New Hampshire's Pemigewasset River, stood some of New England's finest and most bountiful virgin timber. Written by retired forester and longtime rail historian Bill Gove, this book tells the fascinating story of the golden age of lumbering and railroading in this region. Based on more than three decades of research, Gove examines the history of the various logging operations that worked the Pemi watershed for nearly 50 years. Complementing Gove's lively account of this unique era are dozens of vintage photographs, as well as and original maps and charts drawn and compiled by the author.
