I usually wouldn't rate a non-fiction book as 5 stars, but I LOVED this book. I read it 6 months ago - it's still my favorite book I've read this year, and I still think about it at least once a week. It's haunting me! A truly touching story, made me laugh and cry multiple times. ( )

The White Mountains in New Hampshire have 48 peaks over 4,000 feet. The author, Tom Ryan decided to raise money for cancer by hiking these peaks in the winter with his little miniature schnauzer, Atticus. This is their story.

I listened to the audio (read by the author). He does have an accent, which took my mind off what I was listening to occasionally to spell the word in my head (i.e. park = pawk), though mostly it wasn’t a big deal. (Oh, but for the life of me, I could not figure out the town he lived in (though that wasn’t the accent)! All I could hear was “Newb Report”; I looked it up and it was Newburyport. Say that fast (or even a normal speed!) and it sounds like Newb Report, which sounded like a very odd name for a town!) Anyway, I liked Atticus and they sure had a wonderful connection. The story just didn’t “wow” me, but it was enjoyable. ( )

Too much Tom and not enough Atticus. Lyme disease with no tested evidence of Lyme disease? Really? And... enough with the quotations from Emerson and Thoreau and Frost and .......... But....Atticus was AWESOME. ( )

Following Atticus is not a typical read for me...I generally don't like books about animals as I hate to think of them hurting or suffering. But, my mother chose this book for me as a Christmas gift when she was on a trip to New Hampshire and I felt as though reading it helped honor her.

I was rewarded with a wonderful, heart warming story of how a little dog helped a man transform his life. Tom Ryan was a one-man newspaper publisher in a small town. He was overweight and lonely when he took in his first dog. While Max did not live long, he opened the door for Atticus M. Finch, a mini-schnauzer who seemed to carry an old soul with him. Together, they hiked the high peaks in the White Mountains, becoming famous in the process, even as they provided support to each other through some tough times.

I laughed and cried and Ryan's tender story makes me wonder what I've been missing by not reading books about animals.

"There's no sense in going further -- it's the edge of cultivation,"
So they said, and I believed it....

Till a voice, as bad as Conscience, rang interminable changes
On one everlasting Whisper day and night repeated -- so:
"Something hidden. Go and find it. Go and look behind the Range--
Someone lost behind the Ranges. Lost and waiting for you. Go!"
Rudyard Kipling, "The Explorer"

We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.
Joseph Campbell.
