Publisher's Summary

When you're racing 435 miles through the jungles and mountains of South America, the last thing you need is a stray dog tagging along. But that's exactly what happened to Mikael Lindnord, captain of a Swedish adventure racing team, when he threw a scruffy but dignified mongrel a meatball one afternoon. When the team left the next day, the dog followed. Try as they might, they couldn't lose him - and soon Mikael realized that he didn't want to. Crossing rivers, battling illness and injury, and struggling through some of the toughest terrain on the planet, the team and the dog walked together toward the finish line, where Mikael decided he would save the dog, now named Arthur, and bring him back to his family in Sweden, whatever it took. In compelling prose, Arthur provides a testament to the amazing bond between dogs and people.

Heartwarming

Well-narrated story of an international runner who meets a dog in one of his cross-country races that needs him, and connects with him. Very clear narration.

Not Really About the Dog

The author's ego-centric focus really gets in the way of making this a good dog story. If you are into extreme adventure racing, this might appeal to you. But if you are looking for a good dog story, look elsewhere.

Good story

It is a good story and well narrated. Not hard to listen to but there are much better out there for pure enjoyment. Recommend Stay by Larkin for humor, and Promise for heartfelt “AWW” effect. Red for another true story about amazing dogs that adopt people. It is an interesting story of an amazing dog though.
