About this Event

A champagne party sponsored by ten local KC people plus Rainy-Day Books and supporters of Wayside Waifs no-kill animal shelter; Some are matching gross sales that day up to $5000 each in donations to the shelter.

Rick Crandall the inspiring author of The Dog Who Took Me Up a Mountain, will talk about his adventures with an Australian Terrier named Emme (pronounced “emmy”) who was responsible for him starting to hike in the hills around Aspen, Colorado in his sixties. With Emme, the occasional activity became a serious hobby, then blossomed into a full-blown mission, and together the 20 pound dog with four-inch legs and the then sixty-four-year-old Rick climbed their first fourteener. Before long, Rick would go on to climb every mountain over 14,000 feet in the Rocky Mountains – all fifty-eight of them.
