Following Atticus by Tom Ryan, is a book about a newspaper reporter (Ryan) and his relationship with his two dogs. The story is based in Newburyport, Massachusetts, and the White Mountains of New Hampshire, particularly the Four-thousand footers.
Boston Daily praised it for its lack of treacly sentiment and recommended it to dog lovers. Kirkus Reviews called it "lyrical" and mentioned the book's "immense pathos". However, the blog Cairn's of Life was less enthusiastic, accusing Ryan of abusing his dog through taking his pet on so many walks.
