Tales of the White Mountains

Tales of the White Mountains
John Mudge
Introduction by John Mudge

Nathaniel Hawthorne, one of America's greatest writers, wrote four short stories about New Hampshire's White Mountains that are an important part of the literary history of that region--The Ambitions Guest, Sketches from Memory, The Great Carbuncle and The Great Stone Face.

Hawthorne, a student of New England history, incorporated into his writings a mythical America that portrayed a certain history, spirit, and romance of this young country--a spirit and romance that the reader will find in Tales of the White Mountains.

Chronicled in the Historical Epilogue is the 1826 Willey Disaster--the source of not only Hawthorne's The Ambitious Guest but also other historical, literary, and artistic contributions to the history and culture of the White Mountains.
