While conducting research for my upcoming vacation in the White Mountains of New Hampshire (I can’t wait by the way) I came across a recently published book of essays about New England’s tallest peak, Mount Washington. Mount Washington: Narratives and Perspectives, edited by Mike Dickerman, provides some nice stories about the famed mountain, providing an appropriate narrative for such a stunning sight.

About Mount Washington: Narratives and Perspectives edited by Mike Dickerman: “For two centuries, Mount Washington has been the object of countless writers’ wonder and fascination. In this volume, more than twenty previously written pieces inspired by New England’s highest peak have been carefully selected, and collectively these cover nearly every aspect of the mountain’s storied past. Tag along on early explorations of the White Mountains and its fabled Presidential Range. Follow the history of the nation’s first mountain-climbing train and witness many of Mount Washington’s tales of human tragedies. Editor and area historian Mike Dickerman explores the captivating history of one of the Granite State’s most remarkable places.”

It is great to have some history and insights to the places you visit, Mount Washington: Narratives and Perspectives provides that and more.

Mount Washington: Narratives and Perspectives edited by Mike Dickerman is available from Amazon and other fine booksellers.
