Lincoln Logs describes a town created by the logging industry at the end of the nineteenth century. It illustrates the establishment of the Town of Lincoln, New Hampshire, in the upper Pemigewasset Valley on the banks of the East Branch of the Pemigewasset River located in the heart of the White Mountains. It is carved out of a dense, bucolic, virgin tract of unspoiled timberland. Within the book are real-life people of the era who intermingle with five generations of four fictional families suffering through numerous trials and tribulations, becoming deeply involved in interpersonal relationships, and taking an active role in America’s wars from the War of 1812 to Vietnam. Close-knit families cope with the 1893 Depression; enter the twentieth century with new technology in communication and transportation; muddle through the Roaring Twenties, and survive the Great Depression of 1929. At the end of the book, snow skiing replaces the logging industry.
