OVER THE YEARS much has been written about James Everell Henry, the well-known New Hampshire lumberman who remains one of the most controversial and colorful individuals in White Mountain annals. His rise from a simple country boy to the so-called “lumber king” of the Granite State has been well documented by logging historians such as Bill Gove, Fran Belcher, and Robert Pike. But a lesser known, privately published biography of Henry has received much less attention, so it is with great pleasure that we present The Life of J. E. Henry, written by the lumberman’s namesake grandson, James E. Henry II.
Privately published in 1962, this brief account of the legendary Granite State timber baron offers many insights into his remarkable life and is told in a folksy, entertaining manner by the author.
Mr. Henry’s life story is supplemented in this new edition by an extended appendix featuring nearly a dozen period pieces offering more insight into not only his life, but also the working lives of his three sons, and of his hired men, who toiled for decades in the woods of the Zealand and Pemigewasset River valleys of the White Mountains.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each copy of the book will be donated to the Upper Pemigewasset Historical Society of Lincoln, N.H
