Product description

Review

"An amazing journey. Congratulations. Your feat dwarfs others. Your book will be a major success, and it will inspire many into outdoor health, which is a mantra in Colorado.”
John Hickenlooper, former Colorado governor

"I enjoyed reading about Rick's adventures in the mountains with his best friend Emme. You should know that I love dogs. Not so crazy about men. But you don't have to love dogs or men to love this book and how it speaks to all of us."

—Richard Kind, actor

“I am hugely impressed by your ascents of the fourteeners and your approach to the book—never too late to find a new passion in life.”  

—Sir Chris Bonington, legendary mountaineer, author, lecturer, and still climbing in his 80s

***** Recommended

Loved it! This is a very good book well written and interesting. It is about Rick, a man in his 60’s, that is re evaluating his life and where he wants to go from here. His wife suggests they get a dog to help fill in the missing spot in their lives. Along comes Emme, an Australian terrier, and she changes his life for the better. Together they start climbing mountains in Aspen, Colorado and along their life’s journey he comes to realize things about himself. Makes you look at life a bit differently after reading this inspirational story.

**** (4 stars) really liked it

Crandall's warm (and nearly unbelievable) recollections of her taking charge of bears, other dogs, and bulls are humorous, and her impact on his life is inspiring.

--- Greg Guarino

“It was amazing. A wonderful and touching book about the bond between a man and his dog. Once again we learn how wonderful dogs are and how they can improve our health and save our lives in so many ways. This book reminded me of another book called FOLLOWING ATTICUS. If you love dogs and want to better yourself, read this book for inspiration.”
—Jolene, Goodreads reviewer and librarian

Delightful memoir of a man and his Australian terrier and their love of hiking Colorado’s high peaks. This book hit several high notes for me–a great location, a pastime I love, and a dog with personality. Highly enjoyable for dog lovers. My only complaint is that I read the advanced reader’s copy, and the photos were not included. Recommended.

Patricia Cook, Educator

I love this book. A copy is going to each member of my family for Christmas. When I read the book it made me think about the passions in my life, including hiking with my dog, Billie.

Judy Hamilton, author and wildlife photographer
