Hang on.

I haven't read this book, but isn't there another one that just came out recently about a dog that followed a racer out of the Gobi desert? Sure there is. I bought it.

So which one's the rip-off?

This is a fast-paced, action packed look at the sport of adventure racing. Arthur's journey begins late in the race, but is all the more amazing due to his injuries. I absolutely loved this!
