Building A Family, One Mountain Climb At A Time

The cover of "The Adventures of Buffalo and Tough Cookie."

In 2011, author Dan Szczesny and his wife unexpectedly became caretakers to two nine-year-olds. One of them, a girl named Janelle, joins Dan on a quest to hike the New Hampshire mountains known as the “52 with a view.” That quest is the basis for Dan’s book The Adventures of Buffalo and Tough Cookie.

Dan Szczesny and Janelle talk with NHPR's Brady Carlson.

As part of our August series of conversations with authors who write in or about New Hampshire, Dan and Janelle talk with All Things Considered host Brady Carlson about what they learned about each other and themselves while taking in some of the most scenic views in the Granite State.
