Julie Boardman & Dan Allen ~ White MT Fatalities

Sunday, November 12 @ 2 pm

 

Meet authors Julie Boardman

and Dan Allen

 

 

From 1849 to the present 219 hikers, climbers and backcountry skiers have died in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Although many of these fatalities occurred on Mount Washington, in recent years, more have taken place elsewhere. Most of these deaths didn't have to happen.

 

They were the result of an oversight or one or more bad decisions.

 

Julie Boardman wrote Death in the White Mountains in the belief that by studying past fatalities and identifying the mistakes that caused them, we can learn how to be safe in the mountains.

 

Dan Allen wrote Don’t Die On The Mountain primarily about the decision-making process necessary in hiking, with the premise that a solo hiker must have the experience, strength, and knowledge that is expected of a leader.

 

Julie Boardman will discuss her book with a PowerPoint Presentation about the fatal errors that were made by many of the victims, and share some interesting facts from her research. Besides identifying the nine causes of death, she offers advice to help keep your name off the fatalities list.

 

Julie is also the author of When Women and Mountains Meet, which presents the stories of some remarkable women who shaped the rich history of the White Mountains of New Hampshire, all women of courage who had an abiding love for New Hampshire's White Mountains.

 

Please join us for this free, informative and important presentation

 

for all current and prospective hikers.
