2008. By Steven D. Smith and Mike Dickerman. This "'must have" guide to New Hampshire's famous forty-eight 4000-foot summits is the first and only comprehensive guide and history to focus solely on these celebrated peaks. In this greatly revised and expanded second edition, you'll find detailed descriptions to every major trail approach to each summit, plus time-line histories, geographic descriptions, and handy summit view guides describing what can be seen from each peak. There's also handy information on climbing the peaks in winter, the history of the AMC Four Thousand Footer Club, and unusual peakbagging feats. A new second printing edition (Nov. 2012) of the guide also features eight new pages of updated trail information, including damage from 2011's Tropical Storm Irene. Softcover. 550 pp.
