Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Middle-aged, overweight, and acrophobic newspaper editor Tom Ryan and a little dog named 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 Hampshires 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. An unforgettable saga of adventure, friendship, and the unlikeliest of family, Following Atticus is an inspiring tale of finding love and discovering your true self.

Synopsis:

Following Atticus is the remarkable true story of a man and a dog embarking on the challenge of a lifetime. This is author Tom Ryans inspiring tale of how he and his miniature schnauzer companion, the “Little Buddha” Atticus M. Finch, attempted to scale all forty-eight of New Hampshires four thousand foot White Mountains twice in the dead of winter. It is a story of love, loss, and the resilience of the human and animal spirit thats as thrilling as Into Thin Air and featuring the most endearing and unforgettable canine protagonist since Marley and Me.
