"Peaks of the East" is an amusing, interesting, and absolutely entertaining collection of stories about Rein Krevald and his dog Spanky, their travels, hiking, and moutain climbing experiences together.
Specifically, the book is organized around Spanky and Rein's achievment of their first 24 (half the lower 48) state highpoints (highest elevation above sea level within the state), primarily east of the Mississippi, and thus the title, "Peaks of the East."
You'll find great outdoor adventure stories, amusing anecdotes about all kinds of things, really cool dog stories, it's just a fun read for anyone.
