Running with Sherman
- The Donkey Who Survived Against All Odds and Raced Like a Champion
- By: Christopher McDougall
- Narrated by: Christopher McDougall
- Length: 12 hrs and 13 mins
When barefoot running guru Christopher McDougall takes in a neglected donkey, his aim is to get Sherman back to reasonable health. But Sherman is ill-tempered, obstinate and uncooperative - and it's clear his poor treatment has made him deeply fearful of humans. Chris knows that donkeys need a purpose - they are working pack animals - and so when he learns of the sport of Burro Racing or running with donkeys, he sets out to give Sherman something worth living for.
The most delightful book!

So much more than I expected
I bought the book because I have a donkey and every donkey owner loves to hear a good story about a donkey. However this story had so much more and the stories which woven in along the journey were incredible and motivating, you won’t regret listening to this story whether you have a donkey or not.
