The Legend of Chocorua

Thomas Cole relates a local legend to Henry Cheever Pratt during their 1828 hike…
Drawn (loosely) from Cole’s diary:

A Trip to the White Mountains

Actually, Cole says only this on the Chocorua legend:

Chocorua [was] an Indian, from whom the peak, upon which he was killed by the whites, takes its name. [Life & Works, p.96]
