Hiking safety double-header, with Death in the White Mountains, and Don't Die on the Mountain

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018, 2 p.m.

As the spring hiking season ramps up, we've got a double event for all of our hikers and mountaineers, with twice the normal amount of authors and books. Joining us to teach us the ins and outs of avoiding a tragedy on a hiking excursion are Julie Boardman, with Death in the White Mountains: Hiker Fatalities and How to Avoid Being One, and Dan Allen, with Don't Die on the Mountain.

Death in the White Mountains examines the many unfortunate deaths that have claimed the lives of more than 200 hikers, skiers and climbers in New Hampshire's White Mountains. Boardman looks at the root causes of these deaths and identifies the fatal mistakes frequently made by the mountain victims. Besides identifying the nine causes of death, Boardman offers advice to help keep your names off the fatalities list.
Don't Die on the Mountain provides a helpful guide on good judgment while hiking and describes how decisions could be made in the mountains, as well as leadership, followership, and information needed by hikers as the basis for making good decisions.

 

About the Author: Julie Boardman is a professional writer, the author of When Women and Mountains Meet, whose work has appeared in Appalachia, the Sierra Club Magazine, Connecticut Audubon, and many other publications. A New Hampshire resident, she has hiked extensively throughout New England and is a member of both the New Hampshire and New England Four-Thousand-Footer Clubs.
