Christopher McDougall is a journalist and a runner. Frustrated by years of foot injuries, he begins to explore the root cause of these persistent problems and this leads him to the mysterious and wonderful Tarahumara Indians. A reclusive tribe, tucked away in the deep canyons of Northern Mexico. They are known for their incredible endurance for long-distance running. They are capable of running hundreds of miles and foot ailments are non-existent, which is astounding when you realize they run in cheap sandals.
This is a Great Read! The author packs an immense amount of information in here, with a swift narrative, full of humor, insight, controversy and jaw-dropping adventure.
I am not a runner, I prefer walking or biking but this book, not only had me transfixed throughout, it had my adrenaline pumping wildly. This is one of my top reads of the year.
