Recently a young and talented friend of mine, who is the Director of Music and Fine Arts in the Inter-Lakes High School, appeared at my door and requested me to furnish a foreword to his forthcoming volume Follow the Mount, a brief history of Boats and Boating on what we call the Big Lake just to distinguish it from the many other fine lakes in the vicinity. I was naturally flattered to have my arm so painlessly twisted by a specialist in his line as the High School's wrestling coach.
I have read many articles in the old papers and journals which we Yankees are patiently yellowing in our attics, on the practice of Boating by various skippers, but never have I scanned such a thoroughly documented and informative account of this subject. Many fine old photos also speak silently of past and present. As the number of crafts and their skippers increases annually, this book should become a welcome guide and handbook for those who only know the Lake as an irregular patch of blue on the State's map, with a habitable island for nearly every day in the year.
The author has laboriously compiled information from many historic sources available, and gives us a collection of stories and legends of the Lake's past and present, including information on the early builders down to the present owner of the Mount Washington II, Mr. Hedblom of General Ship and Engine Works of East Boston. It has material on both the two largest steamers named for the peak visible from Lake waters, their ports of call, and the story of all the members of the Winnipesaukee Fleet, including the audio travelogues given the passengers, with information of all the spots of interest, even a poem on horse-boating as it was practiced over 100 years ago.
