When a close friend dies of cancer, Tom Ryan and his miniature schnauzer Atticus, decide to pay tribute to her by attempting to climb all 48 of New Hampshire's 4,000 foot peaks twice in one winter while raising money for charity. This is their story...the story of a middle aged, overweight, acrophobic newspaperman and a dog of singular character. It is a book about a remarkable journey and an extraordinary relationship that began when a 5-pound puppy pierced the heart of a tough-as-nails newspaperman opening his eyes to the beauty and possibility in the world. This is an inspiring story about love, loss, and the resilience of the human and animal bond.
