Following Atticus: Forty-Eight High Peaks, One Little Dog, and an Extraordinary Friendship

I saw the cover of this book and knew this was the book that should be featured this Wednesday! First of all, I love dogs! Second, I have 3 miniature schnauzers of my own! Third, To Kill a Mockingbird was one of my favorite books, and the mini schnauzer's name is Atticus Finch! Need I say more? Here is what the reviewers are saying...
Following Atticus is the remarkable true story of a man and a dog embarking on the challenge of a lifetime. This is author Tom Ryan’s inspiring tale of how he and his miniature schnauzer companion, the “Little Buddha” Atticus M. Finch, attempted to scale all forty-eight of New Hampshire’s 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 that’s as thrilling as Into Thin Air and featuring the most endearing and unforgettable canine protagonist since Marley and Me.
I put this one on my to-read list, and I bet Susan would like it too! p.s. another reason I featured this book....Atticus is wearing boots!
Following Atticus has a 4.53 rating on Goodreads! 288 pages (hardcover)
