Up AUTHOR Patricia Ellis HeAfforded and will laugh out loud as Trish urges herself to mother Up when she and Alex meet an ornery and alarmingly bold spruce grouse on the trail This is at heart a resonant emotionally honest account of a mother's determination to foster independence and fearlessness in her daughter to teach her that small doesn't necessarily mean weak; that girls can be strong; and that big bold things are possible..

    Up AUTHOR Patricia Ellis Herr characters » 108 Up AUTHOR Patricia Ellis HeWhen Trish first told me she was writing a memoir about her hikes with Alex I just assumed it would be an extension of her trip reports that we all write from time to time where we record our hikes and then post them on various hiking boards for other hikers to read and critiue Little did I realize as I began reading that it would turn out to be so much than just a chronicle of their hikes together but her dreams and desires for Alex as she explores the world around her laced with its joys and sorrows that we all must experience in everyday life Some parents try to protect their children against the perils that the world has to offer even to the detriment of the child who will learn late in life that the world is not fair Alex will have no such handicap for she was

    Up AUTHOR Patricia Ellis Herr characters » 108 Up AUTHOR Patricia Ellis HeI hate to spend money on a book and not finish the entire thing But I almost did just that with this book The author spends the first part of this book convincing the reader what a perfect mother she is and what an exceptional daughter she hashiking home schooling giving up her Harvard PhD stay at home mom Although she states otherwise she seems pretentious and judgmental Some of the dialogue between her and her daughter seems phoney Yes the daughter may be extremely bright and precocious but I've known a few brightprecocious kids and some of the dialogue doesn't ring true She asks her daughter if she wants to hike grown up mountains then when out hiking they run into a man who apparently hates that her daughter is hiking and he asks why are they hiking grown up mountains

    Up AUTHOR Patricia Ellis Herr characters » 108 Up AUTHOR Patricia Ellis HeLittle people can do big things That in a sentence seems to be Patricia Ellis Herr's theme behind Up A Mother and Daughter's Peakbagging Adventure The book is a memoir that traces author and her five year old daughter Alex as they attempt to join the Four Thousand Footer Club ascending all 40 some of New Hampshire's 4K plus peaksHerr makes it clear that it's all driven by Alex and if the way the little girl is portrayed is accurate then I buy that Alex seems to have been born with an old soul an abundance of energy and no concept of the idea of limits Very coolBut I'm less sure that the idea behind the book is as altruistic It

    Up AUTHOR Patricia Ellis Herr characters » 108 Up AUTHOR Patricia Ellis HeWhat a bummer Although the idea of taking your young children on peak bagging adventures is inspirational this book is a boring pedantic holier than though book to read I know hiking in the Whites can be dangerous scary been there done that but she makes it sound as if these mountains are in the Himalayas For goodness sake I've taken a stroll up some un remembered peak with boxes for collecting blueberries a light jacket and a water bottle before the days of everyday GPS Not every mountain hike is an expedition It

    Up AUTHOR Patricia Ellis Herr characters » 108 Up AUTHOR Patricia Ellis HeOf all the outdoors books I’ve been reading and posting about lately this is my favoriteI feel like I should dedicate this post to the jerk who recently told me that women are weak and shouldn’t go into the woods without a man Insert eye roll here If I didn’t have enough evidence already that’s he’s so wrong Patricia Ellis Herr offers up a wheelbarrow of backup with her tale of hiking New Hampshire’s White Mountains with her five year old daughter in “Up A Mother and Daugther’s Peakbagging Adventure”Herr and her daughter Alex start hiking on a whim but they’re soon addicted to the experience After a few initial mis steps attempting their first peak with improper gear while there’s still snow at higher elevation

    Up AUTHOR Patricia Ellis Herr characters » 108 Up AUTHOR Patricia Ellis HeIt started by accident almost Herr's daughter was small but she had boundless energy and Herr thought hiking might be a good way to use some of that energy So they climbed a mountain They had some false starts eg their very first hike before Herr understood how conditions differ on and off mountains and before she knew what kind of clothing gear they would need to be comfortable and safe but one hike turned into two turned into three turned intoforty eight and then some Up is a pretty uiet book but it's paced well There aren't a lot of high stakes situations to provide tension but considering that two of the main characters were five and three for much of the book's eventsthat's just fine by me Wait that sounds potentially terrible I don't need adults in high stakes situations either But if anyone's going to be in high stakes situations—which can after all make for nail biting reads—better it be adults than kids Herr repeatedly emphasises that her kids were o
