This book had been sitting on my shelf for a quite a while before I finally picked it up, but what a treat! It’s the story of the most unlikely pair of hiking partners — an overweight, middle aged newspaper reporter, and his miniature schnauzer named Atticus M. Finch. Against all odds, these two companions undergo a spiritual awakening in the mountains, and set out to do the impossible: hike all 48 of New Hampshire’s 4,000+ foot peaks. Twice. In a single winter. An inspirational journey and an amazing friendship.
