Editorial Reviews


“The White Mountains, along with the Hudson River and the Adirondacks, were one of the first places that Americans learned to love the sublime, the awe-inspiring, the wild. These peaks have served many other intellectual purposes over the years as well---and anyone who has ever hiked the Great Gulf or Tuckerman’s Ravine will want to read Pavel Cenkl’s fine account of all the meanings they’ve carried.”---Bill McKibben, author, Wandering Home

“Where others might see only a mountain range, Pavel Cenkl sees cultural history. He has produced his own kind of White Mountain guidebook, exploring the many layers of meaning that people have applied to those peaks over time. This book will be valuable to anyone interested in the way Americans produce cultural significance from their natural surroundings.”---Kent C. Ryden, author, Landscape with Figures: Nature and Culture in New England

About the Author

Pavel Cenkl received his BA from Brandeis University, his M.A. from the University of New Hampshire, and his Ph.D. from Northeastern University. He is a member of the adjunct faculty in the Heritage Studies Program at Plymouth State University in Plymouth, New Hampshire. He lives just north of the White Mountains and divides his time among teaching, writing, and raising his son.
