"Finding Gobi". The inspirational, heartwarming and true story of a man and his best friend.

The New York Times, Sunday Times and the International Bestseller about a man, a dog, and the lengths to which love will go to sacrifice for it's companion.

This is the miraculous tale of Dion Leonard, a seasoned ultramarathon runner who crosses paths with a stray dog while competing in a 155 mile race through the Gobi Desert in China. The lovable pup, who would later earn the name Gobi, proved that what she lacked in size, she more than made up for in heart, as she went step for step with Dion over the Tian Shan Mountains, across massive sand dunes, through yurt villages and the black sands of the Gobi Desert, keeping pace with him for nearly 80 miles. Soon to be made into a major motion picture, Dion's book, "Finding Gobi," will be available for purchase and signing. Light refreshments.
