Up: A Mother And Daughter's Peakbagging Adventure by Patricia Ellis Herr
Here's what Publishers Weekly had to say about it:
"...a charming, uplifting account...a keen feminist fable for brave girls."
-- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
Here's a quick overview. A mother takes her energetic young daughters hiking--up really big mountains. The girls love it. Other adults are skeptical and negative. The mother has loads of courage on many different fronts--as a woman, as a mom, as a hiker, and more. The girls learn so much about courage and confidence and determination and more.
As I think about it, I'm most blown away by the courage and strength of the mother and author. She made courageous choices about parenting and life so many times. I hold up her example, not just for her daughters but for brave hearts everywhere.
It's just a gentle quiet book. It's well written. I'm still feeling inspired by it a few weeks later.
