Following Atticus: Forty-Eight High Peaks, One Little Dog, and an Extraordinary Friendship by Tom Ryan is published by William Morrow. It tells the story of my adventures with Atticus M. Finch, a little dog of some distinction. You can also find our column in the NorthCountry News.

Elmer Fudds

It's hunting season up here which makes for an entirely different kind of danger on the trail, especially for Atticus, and we ran into a couple of hunters over in Hemenway State Park on our walk up to the fire tower. That is why Atticus has that yellow ribbon around his neck. It's a make-shift visibility "vest". As I said to our friend Christine, "He looks like a Thanksgiving Day present." (The top photo is funny in that it looks like Atticus is sneaking up on and hunting the hunters.)
