Journalist, husband, father, friend, hiker. Keith Gentili visits Gibson's Bookstore to share his book on hiking as the everyman, a recreational hiker who has climbed New England's 100 highest summits, discovering new things about himself, his life, and his relationships along the way, with White Mountains State: A Four-Year Journey Hiking and Summiting New Hampshire's 48 Highest Peaks.
The book, at its core, is about relationships and not simple hiking. It is about the relationships between a group of people who, over time, commit to a larger goal than their own self-interest. It is also about each individual's relationship with the goal, which in this case is the mountains and climbing all 48 of them. It is also about family and a hiker's relationship with their family, and how that support and love is necessary to complete the goal. There are both husband-wife, and father-daughter relationships explored as well as the evolving dynamic amongst friends as they become family through their hiking partnership and a level of ongoing/increasing trust and support.
