    Wonderful chronological history of Mt. Nimham, the great chief and the other patriots as well. I've visited the fire tower quite a few times and was able to learn quite a bit about the history of this area from reading this book. Being able to put names and timelines to the different ruins on the mountain makes the walk up the hill even more special. I highly recommend it!
