Book of the Week #2

Logging Railroads Along the Pemigewasset River by Bill Gove (Littleton, NH: Bondcliff Books, 2006)

This book from a NH publisher examines the history of various logging operations that worked the Pemi watershed beginning in the late 1800s. Author Bill Gove is a retired (Vermont) forester who writes about New Hampshire's logging railroads. His published books include J.E. Henry's Logging Railroads, and Logging Railroads of The Saco Valley. Each of the books is heavily illustrated and the author has donated many of the photographs to the Upper Pemigewasset Historical Society. The book was featured in the September 2006 issue of Heart of New Hampshire and came to my attention by way of the Village Bookstore's non-fiction best-seller list.
