Part adventure, part extreme sports, all inspiration,Born to Runis a riveting story about one journalist's quest to discover the secrets of the world's greatest distance runnersa reclusive Indian tribe living deep in the Copper Canyon of northern Mexico. Isolated by near-impenetrable terrain, the Tarahumara Indians are one of the most healthy and serene people on the planet and perhaps the greatest runnersable to cover hundreds of miles without rest. With the help of a man called Caballo Blancoan almost mythical Westerner who lives among the tribeChristopher McDougall was able not only to uncover the secrets of the Tarahumara but to join them on a fifty-mile trail race through this rugged landscape with an international gathering of ultramarathoners. In a razor-sharp narrative McDougall describes the growing worldwide popularity of this grueling new sport, takes us through the dizzying preparations for the climactic race with the Tarahumara, and chronicles the truly awesome event itself. It's a story filled with surprise, near-death experiences, crazy prerace drinking sessions, obsessedsome would say madrunners, and, of course, the Tarahumara themselves, who make it all look easy. Galvanizing from start to finish,Born to Runwill leave you breathless.
