War Is a Force that Gives Us Meaning

Join certified mountain guide and Division I college athlete Thomas Hedges, Truthdig publisher Zuade Kaufman and author Chris Hedges for our inaugural five-day backpacking trip and lecture tour through the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

The hike, a rigorous trek up to some of the best scenery on the East Coast, will include a daily one-hour discussion based on Chris Hedges’ best-selling work, War Is a Force that Gives Us Meaning. The trip is recommended only for those in good physical condition.

Cost is $2,100 per hiker and all proceeds, after expenses, will go to sustain Truthdig. The hike will be limited to 12 participants.

Join us for this unique opportunity to meet Chris Hedges and discuss in person one of his most classic and respected works, while experiencing a guided journey through beautiful Appalachia.

In War Is a Force that Gives Us Meaning,
Chris Hedges writes:

"The rush of battle is often a potent
and lethal addiction, for war is a drug.”

The quote opens the film
"The Hurt Locker,"
winner of six Academy Awards.
