Christopher McDougall - Running with Sherman


The Donkey with the Heart of a Hero, a Sports Book Talk & Signing

Christopher McDougall is the author of the bestselling Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen. He will discuss and sign Running with Sherman: the Donkey with the Heart of a Hero ($27.95 Knopf), a heartwarming story about training a rescue donkey to run one of the most challenging races in America.

After adopting a donkey named Sherman from an animal hoarder, McDougall teaches the donkey to run as a way to rehabilitate him. McDougall heard about burro racing--a unique type of race where humans and donkeys run together in a call-back to mining days--and decided he and Sherman would enter the World Championship in Colorado. In this book, McDougall chronicles the journey and Sherman's training, and he shows us the life-changing power of animals, nature, and community.
