The story of Joseph Brooks Dodge, Huts manager of the Appalachian Mountain Club, Pinkham Notch, N.H. for 31 years, is recounted here through a series of anecdotes & vignettes. He built the AMC Hut system & was the individual chiefly responsible for the Mt. Washington Weather Observatory. Putnam brings to life this remarkable character, who was blunt in his speech, but had tremendous knowledge of the outdoors, which he passed along to anyone who would listen.
