Book Overview

Bring home the incredible true story of a friendship so strong that it crosses the globe You will love the inspiring tale of Gobi, a lost dog who kept pace with an ultramarathon runner, Dion Leonard, across a vast desert. Follow their unlikely friendship through the challenges of an 80-mile race and Dion's struggle to bring Gobi home for good.

Finding Gobi: The True Story of One Little Dog's Big Journey is the incredible true story of Dion Leonard, a New York Times bestselling author and athlete, who was befriended by a stray dog while running an ultramarathon through the Gobi Desert. Named for the desert in which he found her, Gobi became Dion's closest companion for 77 miles of the 155-mile race across China. The scrappy little pup ran mile after mile alongside Dion, through treacherous conditions and across raging rivers. He let her sleep in his tent and share his food, and eventually, his focus shifted from winning to the newfound friendship he and Gobi shared.

They crossed the finish line together--not first, but together--and Dion decided to bring Gobi home to Scotland. Just before they were about to leave, however, Gobi disappeared, setting off a worldwide search for the stray. In a town of more than 3 million people, the search seemed hopeless, but this tale of friendship will surprise and delight you as you find out what happens

Join the almost too-good-to-be-true story of hope, friendship, and beating incredible odds in Finding Gobi: The True Story of One Little Dog's Big Journey by Dion Leonard.

   Heartwarming story
It would be interesting to find out where she originally came from and what really happened to her when she went missing, but long story short, it all ended well.

   One of my favorite books.
I read the original adult version of this book and is one of my favorites. I always share the book, but often ask for it back. I wanted to read this version so that I can buy it to an after-school program this fall. Also love this version. Looking forward to a film version, which I understand is in the works!

   Lovely read with a happy ending
I don 't remember hearing about it in the states when it was going on, but that was probably for the best. I am not sure that I could have stood the suspense. Good ending for a beautiful boy '' and his family.

   11 year old son LOVED IT and he's not a big reader! Loved it!
My son, 11 years old, loved this book absolutely. He always found it hard to get into reading, but he LOVED it. He'd read a chapter or two and come tell me all about it! I am so glad the author wrote this children's version! I am now looking for other doganimal adventure non-fiction for him!
