Exoticizing the Tarahumara? Aug 19, 2009
Pepper, read the book. He definitely does NOT claim to have discovered them. In fact, he goes into great historical detail about contacts they have had with explorers and other civilizations for hundreds of years. There is so much more in the book than that little interview showed. Whatever your experience with your people and other aboriginal groups may be, you should really let this book stand on its own. It is extremely respectful of them, while still being objective about the obstacles they face today.

It is mostly encouragement. It won´t talk about technique, but it gives you good hints on why to run, why you CAN run and why human beens MUST run. I liked the book. The first few chapters are kind of boring, but once you past those, reading this book is a great ride until the end. It totally worth reading.
