The Dragon Run : Two Canadians, Ten Bhutanese, One Stray Dog Paperback / softback
Part of the Wayfarer series
Tony Robinson-Smith could hardly imagine that he, his wife, ten Bhutanese college students, and a stray dog would end up running 578 kilometres (360 miles) across the Himalayas.
In early 2006, he arrived in the Kingdom of Bhutan to work as a university lecturer.
A casual conversation with his wife led to the creation of the "Tara-thon," a sponsored run to send village kids to school for Tarayana, the Queen Mother's non-profit foundation.
In Bhutan-the country that originated the concept of Gross National Happiness-Robinson-Smith discovered he had much to learn.
His memoir portrays Bhutan and its people in rich detail at a transformative moment of the Kingdom's history.
Touching and insightful, The Dragon Run is the perfect book for inveterate explorers, adventure sports enthusiasts, and armchair travellers alike.
