From the books I have read the obvious comparison would be to Dean Karnases who along many others for example Scott Jurek and Pam Reed have set many benchmarks within ultra running. I would definitely put Ray Zahab in the same bracket as these characters. This book takes you through his early encounters with ultra running from the Yukon Artic ultra to multi stage races from the Jungle marathon in Brazil to his many outings in the Dessert of Africa.
Although Ray has done remarkably well in many of the races he has completed in. You get the sense that running in theses races are more to him than simply doing well. It is about experiencing the different cultures, raising awareness and simply being in awe of the beautiful world we live in. With every turn of the page Ray's enthusiasm for running and for life will just leap out at you.Read more ›
