“Backpacking with God: In Our National Parks”: an exhilarating highlight reel of the author’s decades of outdoor adventures. “Backpacking with God: In Our National Parks” is the creation of published author David B. Connor, a retired USPS window clerk, former Navy man, storm spotter for the National Weather Service, and an avid kayaker. Connor puts God first as he mountain-hikes year-round and paddles the many lakes and streams of New Hampshire.

Connor shares the pivotal moment his passion for hiking awakened: “The year was 1983. That’s when it all started, but the seed had lain dormant since the summer of 1962. That is when at the ripe old age of fifteen, I’d been fortunate to have accompanied my grandparents and aunt on a trip to the Pacific Northwest and the Canadian Rockies. Something happened to me with that first sighting of Mt. Rainier. The magnificent image of that 14,410-foot peak is indelibly and forever impressed upon my memory. Upon arrival at Paradise Inn, the mountain was shrouded in a stubborn cloud cover so we drove around looking for wildlife and flowers. I gotta tell ya, a fifteen-year-old is not interested in flowers. I wanted to see that mountain! I remember being glued to the car window, nose pressed to the glass, eyes transfixed to the bank of clouds, which I knew hid the mountain from my view. Just one glimpse, one parting of the clouds, one small break, and it would be there.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, David B. Connor’s new book is a thrilling memoir of travel and faith. The story follows the author’s journey as he spends the eighties, nineties, and early 2000s in breathtaking surroundings.

Inspired by God’s glorious creation and full of spiritual insights on the way, Connor takes the reader on an adventure that will bring a grown man to his knees before God.
