Not illustrated. 1922 edition. Excerpt: ... The following brief description does not pretend to cover all of the accidents and illnesses that might occur in the woods.

It is not, therefore, adapted for long expeditions distant many days travel through the wilderness. The commonest and most important emergencies in the woods are, of course, wounds, sprains, fractures and other surgical accidents. Medical and internal diseases are so numerous and their recognition and management so difficult .and technical that accuracy is often impossible under out-of-door conditions, even for a trained physician. We therefore confine ourselves to a few bothersome, though relatively insignificant, disorders and a few statements as to symptoms significant of graver diseases. In the White Mountain region hospitals exist at Berlin, North Conway, Whitefield and Plymouth. These institutions would doubtless give information over the telephone concerning competent physicians in their neighborhoods. Telephone exchanges would probably be able to put an enquirer in touch with local agencies of the better insurance companies, whose medical examiners are generally reliable and competent. SPRAINS. A sprain is an injury of a joint, not involving a broken bone or dislocation. There may be great swelling, ...

When Trish Herr became pregnant with her first daughter, Alex, she and her husband, Hugh, vowed to instill a bond with nature in their children. By the time Alex was five, her over-the-top energy levels led Trish to believe that her very young daughter might be capable of hiking adult-sized mountains. In Up, Trish recounts their always exhilarating--and sometimes harrowing--adventures climbing all forty-eight of New Hampshire's highest mountains. Readers will delight in the expansive views and fresh air that only peakbaggers are afforded, and will laugh out loud as Trish urges herself to "mother up" when she and Alex meet an ornery--and alarmingly bold--spruce grouse on the trail. This is, at heart, a resonant, emotionally honest account of a mother's determination to foster independence and fearlessness in her daughter, to teach her "that small doesn't necessarily mean weak; that girls can be strong; and that big, bold things are possible."
