Críticas

"As someone who has struggled to keep up with Alex on a pair of New Hampshire 4,000ers in winter, I can testify first- hand to what a remarkable hiker and person she is. Trish Herr's charming memoir distills the lessons she learned on the trail with her precocious daughter. "Up" offers a welcome corrective to the Tiger Mother syndrome."
--David Roberts, author of "Finding Everett Ruess: The Life and Unsolved Disappearance of a Legendary Wilderness Explorer"

"Charming [and] uplifting...a keen feminist fable for brave girls."
"--Publishers Weekly
"
"Herr's prose...captures the joy of being on the trail...More than anything, the narrative serves as an apt landscape for a mother to reflect on her choices and on her struggle with how to explain life's unfairness (sexism, cruelty of nature, distrust of strangers) to her daughter while continuing to nurture the innocent joys of fleeting childhood. Warmly ruminative and honestly observant."
"--Kirkus"

"As a parent of two kids myself, I'm always working for more quality time with cell phones and computers turned off. Some of my best times have been kayaking, hiking, and skiing with my family. It's the stuff life is built on. So I love this mother-daughter tale of sharing something beautiful and profound together and building upon those shared experiences. It's what every family should emulate. The delightful stories put a smile on my face as they brought back memories of my daughter when she was Alex's age. And it warmed my heart as they reached each summit together."
-- Erik Weihenmayer, author of "Touch the Top of the World: A Blind Man's Journey to Climb Farther than the Eye Can See "and "The Adversity Advantage: Turning Everyday Struggles into Everyday Greatness
"
"What is more striking than the breathtaking vistas they are rewarded with at the top -- including double rainbows -- are the mountains of emotions Herr expresses as she observes her daughter growing, not just in hiking skills, but in wisdom about people, learning lessons useful in life: Joy, love, and amazement." -- BOSTON GLOBE "
""An entertaining read....UP perfectly captures the roller coaster ride of parenting." -- CONCORD MONITOR
"Inspiring and enjoyable." -- MAINE SUNDAY TELEGRAM
"Herr's account is really half hiking reference manual and half meditation on how to instill independence and confidence at a young age--an odd and oddly compelling combination." -- BOOKPAGE

Descripción del producto

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."

I too am a member of the 4,000 footer club, having "bagged" all 48 peaks. I could relate to the descriptions of all the hikes and trails that were mentioned although I did not do any of the 4 K's in the winter. So, yes, I enjoyed the book from that standpoint. It was descriptive and well written.

I'm not one to criticize Ms. Herr for taking a 5 year old on the quest to hike all 48 peaks. She knows her own daughter and it sounds like the child liked it (most of the time). I too believe that girls/women can and should be encouraged to challenge themselves. BUT, having said that, I do think Mom took some risks that were clearly not necessary. Going on a hike, off season, in NH to an isolated peak like Moriah without another adult was foolhardy. If she (the Mom) had been injured, and couldn't continue, her 5 year old would have had to come down the mountain alone and then seek help - perhaps flag a car down on route 16? That is just one example. I think Mom should at least have had another adult along for some (if not most) of these hikes. "Three" is not a crowd on the mountain, especially in winter and spring.

Ms. Herr talks a lot about giving up a career, choosing to home school her children, and doing all the wonderful things for her daughters that her free time allowed. I don't question her choices, but they seemed to come with some implied sense of superiority over those who might make other choices. When Alex asks: "Other Mothers work outside the home. Are they wrong?", the author answers "I can't know what's best for other mothers and their children. I know only what's best for me and for the two of you."

Tepid answer to say the least. The question was "Are they wrong?" The answer should have been "It's not a matter of right or wrong. Most Moms dearly love their children as much as I love you and Sage. Working outside the home doesn't mean they love their kids any less or that they are wrong to want to do that. It's a choice based on what is best for them and their family, just as I have made a choice on what's best for me and the two of you."

To Alex: You're older now but good for you for accomplishing this feat at such a young age. You did it! Congratulations and best wishes to you and Sage for many more challenging and SAFE hikes.

This was an okay book, but nothing special. The author was a little better than the average hiking book author, but still clearly an amateur writer. It seemed to spend little time actually talking about the climbing experience, more time justifying the way she was raising her children (BTW, I applaud the way she's raising her children). I'm still not sure what the point of the book was. At any rate, for what you got the book was clearly overpriced. A day and a half worth of reading without being really drawn into the book for $14.00 seems a bit much for me.
JMHO.

Up: A Mother Daughter Peakbagging Adventure is a terrific, quick read and it's not just for hikers. Patricia Ellis Herr tells a great story of her adventures with her young daughters on the high trails of New Hampshire's White Mountains, but more importantly she imparts a deep, wise, parenting philosophy centered on giving her children the tools they need to thrive and succeed. A delightfully careful observer of her own internal thoughts and feelings, Ellis Herr carefully considers what she needs to share with little Alex and Sage and what she needs to keep to herself. It's never about her, always about helping the girls achieve their own goals and learn the important lessons of life including confronting sexism and ageism, the terror of a mountain lightning storm, and the importance of persevering in the face of adversity, planning ahead, and making friends. Every parent, indeed every person who has struggled to achieve a goal, can learn something important from this book. You won't be disappointed.

A fascinating read for all more adventurous parents. I found this book refreshingly candid, responsible and intelligent. There is no smugness or posturing and yet the book carried a powerful message on raising active, adventurous children. It's a marvellous antidote to Tiger Mother syndrome, and yet it's all about challenging kids more than we often do when everyone is expected to fit in with the average. The writer doesn't underplay her mistakes and their potentially serious consequences, nor does she overstate or overdramatise everything to make a crowd-pleasing page-turner. Definitely worth a read!

This is a wonderful and inspiring read for all of us that love to hike and have children. While Mrs. Herr's oldest daughter is somewhat exceptional the book stands as a good reminder to the reader to beware of artificially limiting the abilities of our children. It is important to get out into nature with our children early and make it a lifelong pursuit. With care, forethought, and do diligence hiking with you children can be safe and rewarding for all.

This book is a quick and easy read that will have you laughing out loud, on the edge of your seat with suspense, and near tears with pride for the characters.

I highly recommend this book to anyone that hikes and/or has children.
