Following Atticus is the remarkable true story of a man and a dog embarking on the challenge of a lifetime.

Finch, attempted to scale all forty-eight of New Hampshire’s four thousand foot White Mountains twice in the dead of winter. It is a story of love, loss, and the resilience of the human and animal spirit that’s as thrilling as Into Thin Air and featuring the most endearing and unforgettable canine protagonist since Marley and Me.

“Far more than just a typical man-and-his-dog account…Ryan and Atticus have delivered on all counts.” Manchester Union Leader
“Part adventure story, part memoir, but most important[ly], a love story, this entertaining and joyous book proves that dog really is man’s best friend and vice versa.” Publishers Weekly
“Rivetingly portrayed…There’s immense pathos in the frank depiction of the author’s turbulent relationship with his father…In befriending Atticus and carrying his father’s memory to those serene  mountain peaks, Ryan admits he discovered a rare peacefulness, a quality that underscores this touching chronicle.” Kirkus Reviews
