N is for New Hampshire is an alphabet book that introduces children to the sights, landscape, culture, and history of New Hampshire told through stories, anecdotes, verse, and fun facts. However, this is no ordinary alphabet book. In N is for New Hampshire, each letter of the alphabet gets the full Rebecca Rule treatment. A short verse is a little story unto itself, and the text gives weird and wonderful background, delightful anecdotes, and useful information about the topic in a way that only New Hampshire's foremost storyteller can. From Androscoggin to Zealand Falls, N is for New Hampshire will charm readers of any age.

Scott Snyder is a professional wedding, portrait, and fine art landscape photographer based in Henniker, New Hampshire. Scott’s photography strives to capture the extraordinary in the ordinary, the luminous and miraculous in the small details of the everyday. He began his photographic career as a student at The Art Institute of Atlanta in the early ’80s. He is a member of the Professional Photographers of New Hampshire, the New England Photography Guild, and the New Hampshire Artist Association. When not shooting weddings, people, and landscapes, he can often be found surfing off the New Hampshire coast and wandering in the Whites and Greens. His sweetest joy is time with his children: 20-something Hillary, four-year-old Lucy and two-year-old Jack.
