If you’ve been a New Hampshire hiker for any length of time, you’ve probably come across the writings of Dan Szczesny. His latest is “The Continuing Adventures of Buffalo and Tough Cookie,” available as an e-book on Amazon Kindle. Here’s my Amazon review.
If you’ve never read Dan Szczesny’s “The Adventures of Buffalo and Tough Cookie,” this Kindle treat – an extended chapter, really – will send you scurrying for it. The “Continuing Adventures…” goes way beyond the hikes recounted by Dan in the earlier book. Dan and his hiking companion Janelle met as neighbors when Janelle was a child. Over time, they became family, in no small part due to their time together on the trails.
In “Continuing Adventures,” now-teenage Janelle is co-author, telling her own story in a voice complementing her mentor’s. She writes of healing and growth along the way, illuminating a backstory that puts the earlier book into a new and richer perspective.
