Description
							Athlete Dion Leonard was befriended by a stray dog while running an ultramarathon through the Gobi Desert. Named for the desert in which he found her, Gobi became Dion's closest companion for 77 miles of the 155-mile race across China. The scrappy little pup ran mile after mile alongside Dion, through treacherous conditions and across raging rivers. He let her sleep in his tent and share his food, and, eventually, his focus shifted from winning to the newfound friendship he and Gobi shared. They crossed the finish line together-not first, but together-and Dion decided to bring Gobi home to Scotland. Just before they were about to leave, however, Gobi disappeared, setting off a worldwide search for the stray. In a town of more than three million people, the search seemed hopeless, but this tale of friendship will surprise and delight you as you find out what happens!
