WHERE THE WILD RIVER FLOWS: A U.S. Forest Guard’s Work and Family Life in the White Mountain National Forest, 1926 to 1937
By Mildred J. Richardson – Edited and Annotated by Caroleen “Mac” Dudley
Originally hand-written by Mildred Richardson around 1970 and now edited and annotated by her granddaughter, Caroleen “Mac” Dudley, for publication, these are the recollections of the life Mildred and her husband, Alva, spent in the “New Hampshire Wilds” in the 1920s and 1930s. This is the captivating true story of one family’s multi generational connection to the beautiful and unique place called the Wild River valley. The first person account in words and historic photos reveals the sacrifices and special moments of early conservation pioneers in public land management in New England. The book launch and signing will take place from 1:00 to 6:00 pm in the Mason House exhibit hall (14 Broad Street).
