"A history of Neversink Mountain in Reading, Pennsylvania, during what could be called its ""Resort Years"" - from 1880-1930. The book includes some background on the areas first inhabitants the lenni lenape tribe of native Americans. Development on the mountain around 1890 included the Neversink Mountain railroad - the world's first water-powered electric railway, and several large resort hotels, some financed and spurred by the Philadelphia and Reading railroad. Contains 87 black & white illustrations, including a reference map. Not all attractions appeared and disappeared at the same time so each attraction is treated individually, from beginning to end, including the Mountain Railroad."
