The Power of Friendship: A Q&A with Christopher McDougall

Christopher McDougall’s latest book Running with Sherman is pure, feel-good fun. It tells the story of how Chris adopted Sherman, a rescue donkey with a difficult past, and worked with him to overcome all odds and run one of the most unbelievable races in America. This incredibly heartwarming account teaches us about the power of friendship and community, as well as the inherent goodness in both animals and people.

Chris was kind enough to give us a glimpse into his and Sherman’s world with this incredible video Q&A. Watch it to find out where all of the characters in the book are today, and how the experience changed Chris’s life. We’re even more thrilled to say that Sherman himself makes an appearance!
