The White Mountains

A Photographic Journey
NH Books

Finally, a book of photographs devoted to New Hampshire’s White Mountains! “The White Mountains, A Photographic Journey” is the culmination of twenty years of photography by Robert Kozlow of Lincoln, NH. This large format book will appeal to anyone with an interest in these mountains, from first time visitors to long-time residents. It has been years since a photo book of the White Mountains has been available. In fact, this coffee table book may well represent the first-ever comprehensive photo gallery of the White Mountains. The format is simple and direct, with every photo receiving a brief caption. The layout is logical and starts with “valley views”, the views seen from the highway as one approaches the mountains. From the valleys, you are led on a colorful tour of the White Mountain’s natural features, then onto the hiking trails and eventually to the area’s stunning, windswept summits. The book concludes with a series of frosty, otherworldly images from the summit of Mount Washington in winter. All told, “A Photographic Journey” contains about a hundred and twenty photographs of the region’s valleys, villages, waterfalls, wildflowers, lakes and ponds, hiking trails, mountain summits, fall foliage and winter scenes. From covered bridges and village churches to isolated mountain huts, from Pink Lady Slippers and lupines to flaming red maples, and from Arethusa Falls to Tuckerman Ravine, it’s all here.

Robert Kozlow’s photos have been widely used in the White Mountain Region for years, as book covers, in promotional literature and in many of the guidebooks to the area. Some of his book covers include the bestseller, “Not Without Peril”, the current and two prior editions of the Appalachian Mountain Club’s “White Mountain Guide”, and “Hiker’s Guide to New Hampshire”. Most of these cover photos are included in the present book. Bob’s photos are a perennial feature of the region’s promotional literature, they are also to be found in “The Explorer’s Guide to New Hampshire” and many other books and brochures.
