Over the course of a calendar year, journalist Dan Szczesny explored the history and mystique of New England's tallest mountain in his book, The White Mountain: Rediscovering Mount Washington's Hidden Culture (published by Hobblebush Books, 2018). But Mount Washington is more than just a 6,288-foot rock pile; the mountain is the cultural soul of climbers, hikers, and tourists from around the world looking to test their mettle against some of the most extreme conditions in return for a chance to be inspired by some of the most intense natural beauty.
