"Nick Howe has tramped virtually every inch of Mount Washington's surface, and with this book he becomes its preeminent historian. That he happens also to be a graceful and charming story-teller is pure bonus. Not Without Peril is a compulsively readable thriller, actually, a series of thrillers. it will hold equal fascination for the mountain lovers and flatlanders, for anyone who enjoys a good read." John Jerome, author of On Turning Sixty-Five, The elements of Effort, Stone Work, The Sweet Spot in Time.

Nicholas Howe's family first went to the White Mountains as "summer people" in the mid-1880's. As a youth he spent long summers in the mountains and later worked for the Appalachian Mountain Club. After graduating from college he moved to Jackson, New Hampshire where he continues to live.

A journalist since 1977, Nick spent twenty years as a contributing editor and feature writer for Skiing Magazine. He has been a feature writer for Yankee Magazine since 1983, and his 1995 "Fatal Attraction" was a runner-up for a National Magazine Award. His work also has appeared in The Old farmer's Almanac, Backpacker Magazine, Outside, and several anthologies.
