Overview

Speaker - Sandy Stott. Author of Critical Hours - Search and Rescue in the White Mountains. Much of my mountain life has been spent in New Hampshire's White Mountains, where Cardigan is my home mountain and all the other uplands its cousins. These mountains are an inheritance from my father, who fashioned his own mountain life, first under the wing of White Mountain legend JOe Dodge and later on his own. Beginning with a poem in 1986, I've written for and edited (for 10 yrs) the Journal Appalachia, and that work has sent me along word-trails that invoke the foot-trails I know so well. Using incidents and stories from Critical Hours and/or Appalachia's Accidents column, I'll explore how commamd of self and others get challenged, lost, rediscovered and transmitted, and how each us can become her/his own first-rescuer.
