 Up: A Mother and Daughter's Peakbagging Adventure (book)
I am pleased to announce that Broadway Books, an imprint of Crown Publishing Group, will publish my memoir, Up: A Mother and Daughter's Peakbagging Adventure, on April 3, 2012. Up chronicles then-five-year-old Alex's quest to climb the White Mountain Four Thousand Footers. The book has received very positive reviews; Publishers Weekly describes it as "a keen feminist fable for strong girls."

We have three book signing events thus far (we might add more later).

April 3 (date of publication): 7pm at Harvard Coop in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA

April 25: 7pm at Water Street Bookstore in Exeter, NH

April 28: 7pm at Father Roger Bilodeau Community Center, 194 Pollard Road, Lincoln, NH (Steve Smith from The Mountain Wanderer is hosting)

For more information about the book, the signings, or other publicity events, please see my website, http://www.trishalexsage.com, or my Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/PatriciaEllisHerr.

A huge thank you to all those who have supported us over the years! We are eternally grateful.

Congratulations, a lot of hard work and it's nearly here! I've been looking forward to reading this for a while. I plan to share it with my daughter when she's a little older (she's only 2 now) and I hope she has the same enthusiasm for hiking that your girls have.

Additional congratulations to Alex and yourself for finishing up your winter list over the weekend!

I look forward to reading it as well. Liam is 13 weeks now so I have some time, but I am interested to see how you got someone so young that interested in hiking all those peaks.

Heather, Kris, and Ian, many thanks! :)

IQuest, I can't take credit for getting Alex motivated. She was always motivated -- I kept her outside as much as possible, that was my big contribution to her toddlerhood. The desire to do these peaks came from within her, I never did anything to try to convince her to pursue the NH48. I suggested the quest on a whim, and she jumped on it. Later, Sage became motivated by watching her big sister.

That's awesome and amazing at the same time. If I can only be so lucky. Were you into hiking before as much as you are now or was it something relatively new for both of you? Did I mention how awesome that is?

Ian, thanks. :) I'd done a bit of hiking in the Italian Alps, and I was used to walking everywhere instead of taking a car or bus. So I had a bit of long-distance walking/hiking experience..but not all that much. For the most part, Alex and I learned together on the trails.

The key for me was to get both kids outside and keep them there as much as possible, from birth on. Whatever they chose to do outside was fine by me. Then I accidentally found info about the 4K Club and suggested it to Alex on a whim. Once we'd done one, it was apparent she could do others without too much trouble. After we did our second one, she asked to do more, and soon it became a let's-get-them-all-done, methodical quest.

Sage likes to get out there too, but I don't think she would have been as interested in pursuing the 4Ks if she hadn't heard her sister talk incessantly about them.

I am planning on going to Trish's book release party and book-signing at the Harvard Coop on Tuesday (April 3 at 7 pm). Anyone else interested in joining me?

Bump!

I finished Up Tuesday and thoroughly enjoyed the story of Trish and Alex's adventures. I downloaded it to my phone in North Conway when I realized we would make it to camp (on our way up Isolation) early in the afternoon. I hoped it would be a good read while lounging in my tent. It was in fact I couldn't put it down and read almost the whole thing that first night.
