Finch are an unlikely pair of mountaineersbut after a close friend dies of cancer, the two pay tribute to her by attempting to climb all forty-eight of New Hampshires four-thousand-foot peaks twice in one winter while raising money for charity. In a rare test of endurance, Tom and Atticus set out on an adventure of a lifetime that takes them across hundreds of miles and deep into an enchanting but dangerous winter wonderland. An unforgettable saga of adventure, friendship, and the unlikeliest of family, Following Atticus is an inspiring tale of finding love and discovering your true self.
