Description

A riveting collection of stories from the world of endurance sports
Endurance athletes know the feeling—that oscillation between pain and delight, the pursuit not so much of beating others but of testing their own limits, the finish that often comes with the recognition of how sweet and big life is. It doesn’t matter if it’s a kid trying to break a pogo stick world record or a professional athlete attempting to topple the reigning marathon champion—these endeavors in endurance have a way of fascinating us all. In Unbound: Unforgettable True Stories from the World of Endurance Sports, journalist Bill Donahue has pulled together a captivating collection from his years of reporting on everything from cycling the wilds of Dominica to cross-country skiing in Alaska with the U.S. military. The stories feature the fearless Swiss explorer Sarah Marquis breaking up the “boys club” of exploration, four-year-old Budhia Singh running 37 miles without stopping, a visit to Tour de France contender Nairo Quintana’s Colombian village in the High Andes, and more. Unbound spans across seven countries on five continents, moving from the slums of Bhubaneswar, India, to the windswept tundra of the Alaskan Arctic. Discover diverse cultures and indelible, inspiring characters as you journey with the author along the roads and trails of the world.
Bill Donahue is an independent journalist who has written for Outside, Harper’s, Wired, The New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic, Men’s Journal, Runner’s World, the Washington Post Magazine, and more. He is the author of Runaway: How a Slave Defied America’s First President and a three-time winner of the Lowell Thomas Awards gold medal for adventure travel writing.
