Description


When Women and Mountains Meet presents the stories of some remarkable women who shaped the rich history of the White Mountains of New Hampshire, including:
* The Austin sisters, the first women to climb Mount Washington;
* Lucia and Marian Pychowska, a mother-daughter team who made first ascents in the White Mountains when the region was an untracked wilderness;
* Emilie Klug, an endearing character who spent her vacations wandering alone on the Presidential Range;
* Miriam Underhill, a White Mountain rock climber who became the world's foremost woman mountaineer.
Here you will meet pioneers, explorers, climbers, artists, writers, scientists, and conservationists--all women of courage who had an abiding love for New Hampshire's White Mountains.
