            Christopher McDougall's new running partner, Sherman, is ill-tempered, obstinate, and often so uncooperative that Christopher leads him with a rope. Sherman is also a donkey. After rescuing Sherman from a neglectful owner and almost certain death, Christopher McDougall plunges in...to the world of Burro Racing -- running a marathon accompanied by a Donkey. His aim is to rehabilitate Sherman, to give him purpose, and to participate in the World Championship Pack Burro Race in Fairplay, Colorado, where Burro Racing was invented. But along the way, as McDougall learns how to care for his new companion and meets the men and women who have fallen in love with Burro Racing, he discovers how working with animals can teach profound lessons about what it means to be human.

            Their mission: to crush - yet again - the subhuman Slavs . In the background are forces - sexism, class hatred, nationalism - whose shadows darken today's world too. In the foreground are eccentric aristocrats, socialite spies, daredevil jockeys - and a race so brutal that some c...onsider merely taking part in it a sign of insanity.

            Author Elizabeth Benney was a brat of a child. She's completely candid about it - self-centered, perverse, willful, obstinate ...living for her one passionate obsession - horses. It's a life-story that at last faces up to what we must all confront, that's if we're lucky enough to... live long enough. What will it be, in our own advancing years, which we will be forced to give up, forever? Will she ever learn to say 'No more'? Liz Benney portrays her day-to-day life running of their New England horse farm, and the many return visits to her own country, New Zealand. Then there are her accounts of her girlhood, her forays into the Antarctic and into deepest China, and her extraordinary capacity for attracting memorable characters. Throughout it all is the foundation of her marriage to 'rock solid' Kiwi mathematician Dave, her family and friends and the undying 'can do' spirit of her pioneering New Zealand forbears. Michael Korda, publisher, editor and bestselling author (his biography of T.E. Lawrence) has said: 'I enjoyed reading this story very much. It is funny, sometimes sad, and full of great stories, exactly what a memoir should be.'

            Blame it or praise it, there is no denying the wild horse in us. -Virgina Woolf What if you could take a week off from your life every year and meet up with a group of friends to ride horses in the remote north of Iceland? Crazed midnight sun energy, randy stallions, Arctic cuisi...ne, challenging place names, ghost encounters, never-too-late in life crushes - in the land where unexpected adventures repeatedly astonish you. In Tory Bilski's memoir, Iceland becomes a Land of Oz, where an unencumbered version of the author emerges when, for one week each year, she can slip the chains of her everyday routine and responsibilities and really be herself. The author and her fellow travellers are more daring, resilient, noisier, gluttonous, and the author finds that otherwise tamped down 'wild horse' in herself. Each year brings a discovery about Iceland, about herself and about her friendship with the women, who not only find their best selves but revel in being their most ridiculous selves .
