*THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER AND MAJOR MOTION MOVIE PICTURE ON AMAZON PRIME, STARRING MARK WAHLBERG, SIMU LIU, JULIET RYLANCE AND NATHALIE EMMANUEL* 'A shaggy dog story with a lovely happy ending' BBC Breakfast When you are racing 435 miles through the jungles and mountains of South America, the last thing you need is a stray dog tagging along. But that's exactly what happened to Mikael Lindnord, captain of a Swedish adventure racing team, when he threw a scruffy but dignified mongrel a meatball one afternoon. When they left the next day, the dog followed. Try as they might, they couldn't lose him - and soon Mikael realised that he didn't want to. Crossing rivers, battling illness and injury, and struggling through some of the toughest terrain on the planet, the team and the dog walked together towards the finish line, where Mikael decided he would save Arthur and bring him back to his family in Sweden, whatever it took. 'An incredible journey' Daily Telegraph 'Arthur latched onto an extreme sports team during the Amazon race - and what happened next will melt the hardest heart' Daily Mail

Övrig information

Mikael Lindnord is a Hall of Fame adventure racer. As a boy he wanted to be an ice hockey player, but failing to make the team at the age of seventeen set him on a different path. After doing military service he became an adventure racer in the late 90s. He travelled the world and raced in the Adventure Racing World Series for almost two decades. Today he is a bestselling author, producer, public speaker, entrepreneur, coach and project leader. Arthur was a mongrel from somewhere in Ecuador. He liked meatballs, long runs with Mikael and relaxing with his family in Sweden. As an editor of non-fiction at major publishing houses, Val Hudson published many ground-breaking bestsellers. Now a full-time writer, she is the author of a wide range of non-fiction and, as Chloe Bennet, the 'Boywatching' series of novels for young teens.
