Village Books is so pleased to welcome Christopher McDougall back to the Chuckanut Radio Hour to discuss this heartwarming story about training a rescue donkey to run one of the most challenging races in America.
When Chris McDougall agreed to take in a donkey from an animal hoarder, he thought it would be no harder than the rest of the adjustments he and his family had made after moving from Philadelphia to the heart of Pennsylvania Amish country. But when he arrived, Sherman was in such bad shape he could barely move, and his hair was coming out in clumps. Chris decided to undertake a radical rehabilitation program designed not only to heal Sherman’s body but to heal his mind as well. It turns out the best way to soothe a donkey is to give it a job, and so Chris decided to teach Sherman how to run.
Christopher McDougall will be interviewed by Sonja Wingard, Executive Director of Animals as Natural Therapy.
Tickets for the Chuckanut Radio Hour are $5 and are available at Village Books and Eventbrite. Receive a free ticket with purchase of Running with Sherman. See villagebooks.com for more details.
