Teaser: Following Atticus by Tom Ryan


I'm often asked, "Do you have a favorite mountain?"
"Any mountain where Atticus and I can be alone on top," I say. (ch. 25)

Title: Following Atticus: Forty-Eight High Peaks, One Little Dog, and an Extraordinary Friendship
Author: Tom Ryan
Hardcover: 288 pages
Publisher: William Morrow (September 20, 2011)
Genre: memoir

Product description: Tom Ryan and miniature schnauzer Atticus M. Finch are an unlikely pair of mountaineers, but after a close friend dies of cancer, the two pay tribute to her by attempting to climb all forty-eight of New Hampshire’s four-thousand-foot peaks twice in one winter while raising money for charity. In a rare test of endurance, Tom and Atticus set out on an adventure of a lifetime that takes them across hundreds of miles and deep into an enchanting but dangerous winter wonderland. (from book cover)

  7. Lovely teaser! Sounds like a good read -- except for the mountain-climbing part of it! (I'm not fond of heights.)

  11. We have a guy here in Montana that did much the same things for much the same reason - only in his case his wife died in a canoeing accident.

  18. These little cute lines say so much about the book.
    I love adventure books. I've read quite a few books with the story of love between man and dog. And I would love to read another one.

  19. I thought this a beautiful story of a middle aged, over weight man, and how a little dog inadvertently comes into his life. The relationship that developed transforms him completely. A happy story and not sappy at all. A dog is an amazing creature.
