NH Author Donates Book Sale Proceeds to Trees Not Towers

September 14, 2012

Pamela Lord is no stranger to New Hamphire's North Country. Her first view of the Presidentials was from over her father’s shoulder where she nestled in a makeshift backpack.

She was three months old.

Although she doesn’t remember that hike, it was her introduction to a lifestyle that she continues to enjoy and has passed on to her own children and grandchildren.

A long time New Hampshire Forest Department employee and avid sportsman, Pamela’s late father, Lawrence Stevenson often took her hiking in the White Mountains to scout game. Stressing her need to remain observant, he would take her to the top of a mountain and let her set the course for home. Whenever a correction was needed, it was always accompanied by a snippet of wisdom that would serve her well for future treks into the wilderness.

Memories of their great adventures were partially the inspiration for Loon Cove.

“We must do everything within our power to preserve New Hampshire’s natural resources. If we allow them to be destroyed we will bear witness to the destruction a culture and rural lifestyle that is quickly diminishing in this country. By working with the Society for the Preservation of New Hampshire Forests, I honor the legacy of my father’s lifelong career with the NH State Forestry Department.”

Pamela and her husband divide their time between their log home in southern New Hampshire and their North Country cabin where they enjoy fly-fishing, kayaking, snowmobiling and hiking.
