Summary
"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."--
