A riveting collection of stories from the world of endurance sports.

Endurance athletes know the feeling—that oscillation between pain and delight, the pursuit not so much of beating others but of testing your own limits, the finish that often comes with the recognition of how sweet and big life is. It doesn’t matter if you’re a kid trying to break a pogo stick world record or a professional athlete attempting to topple the reigning marathon champion—these endeavors in endurance have a way of fascinating us all.

In Unbound: Unforgettable True Stories from the World of Endurance Sports, award-winning journalist Bill Donahue brings together an incredible collection of stories from his years of reporting on everything from cycling the wilds of Dominica to ultramarathons. They feature the fearless Swiss explorer Sarah Marquis breaking up the “boys club” of exploration, the author cross-country skiing in Alaska with the U.S. military, Karl Bushy’s attempt to circumnavigate the globe on foot, a visit to Tour de France contender Nairo Quintanta’s Colombian village in the High Andes, and more.

The stories span seven countries on five continents, from the slums of Bhubaneswar, India, to the windswept tundra of the Alaskan Arctic. Take a journey with the author along the roads and trails of the world, and discover obscure stories, diverse cultures, and unforgettable characters.

 


Bill Donahue is a journalist. In reporting stories, he's searched for fallen meteorites in the Sahara Desert, sneaked into Manuel Noriega’s abandoned beach house, and camped out with Army soldiers in the minus 30 degree chill of the Alaskan Arctic. He beleives in journalism and in honest, compassionate storytelling. Bill lives in New Hampshire, and tries to get out on his bike or on cross-country skis every afternoon.
