THESE two handsome volumes portray the beauty and nature of New Hampshire's White Mountains through the eyes and words of MIT professor Walter H. James and his wife and sister-in-law, avid outdoorsmen and photographers who camped and hiked hundreds of miles through this area with friends and family in the first quarter of the twentieth century. They chronicled their explorations in well-written scrapbook and journal entries, which have been lovingly transcribed and annotated by two of the James's grandchildren, Jane and Ben English. Illustrated with trip maps and account records, sketches and post cards, and hundreds of Walter James's photographs--many of them fine art photos produced from the original glass and film negatives he shot from 1906 on--these are far more than ordinary family journals. Together they offer a wonderful glimpse into outdoor life and history a hundred years ago, as well as a beautiful photographic essay on the White Mountains.
