The link is here and since authors are listed alphabetically you'll want to scroll down to the bottom of the page to find us. Or you can just read what they had to say here:
Ryan, Tom. Following Atticus: Forty-Eight High Peaks, One Little Dog, and an Extraordinary Friendship. Morrow. Sept. 2011. 288p. ISBN 9780061997105. $26.99.
Newspaper editor Ryan first met Atticus M. Finch as a five-pound puppy, carrying him around for a month so that they could bond. But they really bonded when, to raise money for charity after a friend died of cancer, Ryan set out in the winter of 2006–07 to climb all 48 peaks over 4000 feet in New Hampshire’s White Mountains—twice. And he did it with his little dog, an experience that changed them both forever. Another heartwarming dog story (there can never be enough), with this one getting attention from national hiking clubs as well as Muttluks, which makes canine booties. A strong contender for canine and inspirational lovers alike; with a 100,000-copy first printing.
