Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Kim Nilsen is an award-winning periodicals editor, reporter, and author. He is the founder of the Cohos Trail Association, which built the 162-mile Cohos Trail that extends north from the White Mountains’ Crawford Notch to the Canada border.

More About the Author

Author K.R.Nilsen: I am best known as a hiking guidebook writer and long-distance hiking trail builder, but with my new novel, Yellowstone, I try my hand at fiction.

Titles I have authored include: 50 Hikes North of the White Mountains, from Countryman Press; The Cohos Trail, The Guide to New Hampshire's Great Unknown, formerly from Fox Run Press and now published by the Cohos Trail Association; and A History of Whitefield, NH, from the Steinhour Press.

Most recently, a freelance article I authored was featured among five lead stories in the Boston Sunday Globe. Also, I was extended an invitation to be a guest author contributing to a weighty anthology, North of the Notches, compiled and published by Franklin Pierce University.

My writing career has included a three-year stint as an associate editor at Yankee Publishing, Inc., Dublin, NH, and nearly a decade of work as a journalist with New England dailies and weeklies.

I received the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) Grand Gold Award for editorial excellence in a periodical, and was the founding editor of a short-lived science publication for young people entitled DinosaurUs.

A resident of New Hampshire for more than 40 years, I reside at the homestead of a hardscrabble farm where I experiment with year-round food cultivation in coldframes and greenhouses, write, paint mountain landscapes, and plan hiking trail systems and trail infrastructure for northern New England forest environments.

I am currently overseeing the development of an organic and biodynamic four-season farm and farm program for a Waldorf community at Camp Glen Brook in southwestern New Hampshire. I will be writing about developing self-sufficient living modes in the future, similar to that spelled out in the Yellowstone novel.

It doesn't give milage to certain points on trail,writes about trails that are not complete yet which does not make sense since an average hiker is not a bushwacker,and the book is very confusing to follow.It seems like the author wanted to make a buck quickly By rushing on it.As a big hiker for years in this area,I think that this book should be redone.

As an avid White Mountain hiker, I eagerly purchased this book. The book is well-written and it does provide many new hikes for me to consider. Strangely though the book does not provide information on elevation gain nor does it provide information on how far various sections of the hikes are. Both these pieces of information are essential for safe hiking in the mountains. I am puzzled why the author omitted this information and the publisher didn't insist on it. Perhaps the deficiency can be remedied with an online supplement to the book. If they do I will upgrade my rating to five stars.

My family hikes all over New Hampshire, Vermont, and Massachusetts. We prefer the less travelled locations, away from crowds during high-seasons. Mount Monadnock in Jaffrey, NH is beautiful but too many people for our tastes.

We've been hiking north of the White's for some time, but this is the first truly comprehensive guide we've found. The directions are clear, each hike is rated by difficulty and described in excellent detail. There are more hard-core hikes, moderate hikes, and plenty for families with children.

A chart in the front of the book helped me plan based on many criteria. Remember to read the "tips" about hiking in the North Country. Above all - be prepared with the proper gear and remember cell coverage is spotty in the Grande Bois du Nord!
