A beautiful photographic ramble through the Baker River Valley of New Hampshire. In the heart of New Hampshire, the geographic center of the state, is a beautiful meandering river that is the focal point of a very special community of people and a landscape that grows into the heart like a spreading wildfire. The Baker River, called Asquamchumaukee by the original natives of the region, is an archetype of a river flowing freely along the Baker River Valley in the southern foothills of New Hampshire's White Mountains and to the east of the Upper Valley Region, beginning with the fast flowing waters of the Moosilaukee region and ending in broad lugubrious oxbows where it meets the Pemigewasset River. Anyone who has canoed the Baker or climbed Rattlesnake Mountain or hiked Mount Cube; anyone who has bicycled or driven along the Buffalo Road, can't help but fall in love with this area. If the landscape isn't enough the people will seal the deal: pragmatic, serious-minded in their politics, and deeply devoted to their families; people who work hard, play hard and who immerse themselves joyfully in the life of their community and the other communities of the valley. In that spirit, proceeds from sales of this book benefit the local "Got Lunch!" programs in the Valley. Got lunch provides nutritious lunches for children who qualify for the Federal free lunch program but who are not provided with meals during the summer vacation. Got lunch assures that the children of the Baker River Valley will return to school, ready and able to learn and unhampered by the challenges of poor nutrition. This book is the eBook edition version of the book. A limited edition art book version of this book, signed and numbered with a limit of 250 books is also available.
