about

For 100 years, the AMC White Mountain Guide has led hikers into New Hampshire's White Mountains, a spectacular swath of wilderness located within a day's drive of New York, Boston, and Montréal. Called the oldest continuously published hiking guide in the United States by the National Outdoor Book Awards, the Guide has generated a loyal following of hikers and outdoors lovers who anxiously anticipate the publication of each new edition. In celebration of the Guide's 100th year in print, this handsome retrospective offers collectors, historians, and avid hikers an in-depth photographic record of the evolution of this "hiker's Bible" over the past century. Black-and-white historic photographs-many of which are published for the first time here-are supplemented by first-hand accounts and bring to life the people behind the Guide, who were planning and building the very trails that they later documented in its earliest editions. Beginning with the first edition and tracing the Guide's history through its current 28th edition, the Centennial Retrospective also reflects the evolution of public attitudes towards recreation, stewardship, and conservation as each successive edition of the Guide reflected changes in trail development and usage, conservation policy, and mapping technologies. A full-color insert will delight collectors with photos of every edition since 1907, providing a visual guide to the book's changes in size, page count, and cover design. White Mountain Guide: A Centennial Retrospective stands as a stunning tribute to the Guide's first 100 years.
