Summary
"Death in the White Mountains is about the hikers, climbers, and back-country skiers who have died in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and Maine. The goal in writing this book has been to find out why there has been such an appalling loss of life ... My purpose has not been to blame the victims but to find out what their stories can teach us. It is hoped that by discovering the fatal errors that led to these deaths, the number of mountain tragedies can be reduced."--Introduction
