Advanced Praise for the Book

“I’ve always believed that people who didn’t love miniature donkeys are going to hell. I think people who don’t love this book may be too. This is more than just a lovely tale about a wounded animal. It is the kind of story that breaks your heart and mends it all in the space of a paragraph or even a line. Besides, it’s about a MINIATURE DONKEY.” —Rick Bragg, best-selling author of The Best Cook in the World

“I, like roughly three million other running enthusiasts, was briefly obsessed with Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen when it appeared a decade ago. Now, roving journalist and good-natured running proselytizer Christopher McDougall is back with another inspirational of borderline insane people racing inhumanly long distances. Except, TWIST: this time Chris isn’t just pounding the pavement with his fellow homo sapiens. In Running with Sherman, he recounts his efforts to rehabilitate the body, mind, and spirit of a weary donkey by entering them both in the pack burro racing World Championship.” —Dan Sheehan, Lit Hub “Most Anticipated Books of 2019 part 2”

“What an insane, amazing story. I genuinely cried so many times throughout it, and cried the happiest tears at the end. Running with Sherman is an inspiring love letter to the beautifully broken and the immeasurable power of healing together. It is a meaningful reminder that no one is ever beyond repair. This book motivated me to test my limits, and made me feel deeply ashamed my work ethic and athletic prowess are only half that of a farm animal. Sherman the Donkey is my personal superhero.”

—AJ Mendez Brooks, former WWE superstar “AJ Lee” and author of Crazy Is My Superpower.
