Legendary Locals of New Hampshire's Lakes Region by Ray Carbone (Charleston, South Carolina : Arcadia Publishing, 2015.)

Local author Ray Carbone introduces us to a variety of personalities from the Lakes Region in his recent book about some of New Hampshire's finest.
"There are few places in America that have such a rich variety of landscape and scenery as the Lakes Region of New Hampshire: from the summer calm of Squam Lake to the robust white winter mountaintops of the Gunstock Mountain Resort. So it is no surprise that the people who call it home reflect the same wide palette of humankind—from the pre–Revolutionary War surveyors who first marked their initials on a rock at Weirs Beach to Bob Lawton, the current owner of the world’s largest arcade; from one of George Washington’s inner circle to Ernest Thompson, the award-winning author of On Golden Pond. The Lakes Region draws them—or grows them—all, because it has it all." -Publisher's blurb 
Ray is the editor of The Lakes Region of New Hampshire: Four Seasons. He also regularly contributes to New Hampshire Public Radio’s website, the Boston Globe, New Hampshire magazine, New England Boating, New Hampshire Union Leader, and New Hampshire Business Review.
