Mountain Summers: Tales Of Hiking And Exploration In The White Mountains From 1878-1886 As Seen Through The Eyes Of Women

Rowan, Peter and June Hammond Rowan
(Gulfside Press, 1995)

In the late 19th century, the four women of Mountain Summers explored the White Mountains, botanized, surveyed new trails and wrote letters to each other about their discoveries. This collection of letters and diary entries provide a fascinating look at the early days of mountain adventure from a uniquely female perspective. The editors' introduction includes biographical sketches of the writers, who were members of the Appalachian Mountain Club.
