Opening paragraph:

Mount Katahdin is the o'ertopping feature of the state of Maine which stands conspicuously among the states because of its wealth of natural attractions. It is the center of a vast forest expanse which stretches forth from the mountain's base, and Katahdin's domain is rich in lakes and streams and lesser heights. Katahdin, or Ktaadn as the mountain's name sounds in the pronunciation of the Indian dialects, means "the greatest mountain," and no more appropriate title could be given it..
