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.

Appalachia & Beyond Reviews Following Atticus

How sweet is this photo?
I consider it an honor when those I respect the most 'get' our story and enjoy it.  It means something more to me because they understand our love of nature and mountains and the bond between man and dog. 

In their review it says: "But let me warn you, this is not just a book about a dog. It's not just a book about adventure. The mystery is never rectified. But you will be left with a heart-warming sensation - a newly acquired approach to the way you view life - and probably even the lives of the pets you love."

The entire Appalachia & Beyond review
can be read here.  It also has a link to our fabulous book trailer created by Joe Carter.

(Oh, and by the way, don't you just love the accompanying photo?)

That is it, isn't it Tom. How we live our life, how we care about others especially our canine friends, and how we care about the beauty of this great land. It is all there in Following Atticus. A wonderful read, but so much more. Thanks.

It's an even better picture if you take that guy out of it. :P Thanks for linking back to us Tom. Any word on more tour dates down this way of Rocky Top?

I found your book in a store in the middle of Cornwall in the UK while on holiday last week and read it within the day- I couldn't put it down! It is such a wonderful, wonderful book. I loved your descriptions of the mountains and the peace you found with Atticus while hiking. Thank you for sharing your journey x
