From the back cover:
In an effort to "reunite" the two towns in regard to their common heritage, The Ossipee Riverlands brings together a group of pictures grounded in the mutual reliance on one resource, the Ossipee River. This volume shows the shift from hillside farming, rural school districts, horse and buggies, and the use of water power to a more mobile society catering to summer boarders, artists, writers, and campers arriving by train, then automobile.
Carol C. Foord, a natural history teacher with Tin Mountain Conservation Center and president of the Freedom Historical Society and a member of the New Hampshire Historical Society, and Sheila T Jones, a member of both the Effingham and the Ossipee Historical Societies, use a wonderful selection of images from local museums, historical societies, and townspeople's personal collections to create a fascinating book that is sure to be of interest to both year-round and summer residents.
