Up: A Mother and Daughter’s Peakbagging Adventure

  • True Story
  • Who knew girls could be so adventurous?
  • Heartwarming
  • Your kids should be so lucky
  • About the Author – PATRICIA ELLIS HERR holds a master’s degree in biological anthropology from Harvard University and homeschools her two daughters. She lives in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

When Trish Herr became pregnant with her first daughter, Alex, she and her husband, Hugh, vowed to instill a bond with nature in their children. By the time Alex was five, her over-the-top energy levels led Trish to believe that her very young daughter might be capable of hiking adult-sized mountains.

In Up, Trish recounts their always exhilarating–and sometimes harrowing–adventures climbing all forty-eight of New Hampshire’s highest mountains.  Readers will delight in the expansive views and fresh air that only peakbaggers are afforded, 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.”
