Book of the Week (6/25/2018)

The White Mountain: Rediscovering Mount Washington’s Hidden Culture by Dan Szczesny (Brookline, N.H. : Hobblebush Books, 2018).

NH native, and acclaimed author Dan Szczesny brings us yet another fascinating book; this time focusing specifically on the Granite State's own, Mount Washington.
From the vaulted heights of New England's highest peak, Travel Writer and Journalist Dan Szczesny will spend a year exploring the very heart of the White Mountains. But Mount Washington—home of the world's worst weather—is more than just a Rock Pile, it's the cultural and natural soul of climbers and tourists from around the world. From car races to bird watching, from bikes to motorcycles, from the railroad to the stars to a centuries-old observatory, Mount Washington speaks to the adventurer in all of us, and Dan plans on turning his veteran journalist's eye toward capturing it all in his new book, The White Mountain. --Publisher's blurb.
