Over the Hill Hikers

Over the Hill Hikers: And How They Grew...and Grew...and Grew, by Shirley Elder Lyons, 2011. Written by veteran political reporter Shirley Elder Lyons, this charming little hardcover book tells the story of a casual but determined group of retirees in the Sandwich, NH area who banded together and began hiking every mountain in sight. Organized in the early 1980s by Elizabeth MacGregor Bates (daughter of legendary early AMC hutmaster Milton "Red Mac" MacGregor) and other hiking enthusiasts, the group guided many hikers through the 4000-footer list, and then came up with its own "52 With a View" list to bring the total number of mountains to 100. Sprinkled throughout are interesting anecdotes and personality sketches.  Hardcover, 128 pp, 5 1/4" x 7 1/4."
