Author: Dion Leonard Narrator: Candida Gubbins Release Date: February 2019

Lara the Runaway Cat tells the story of Gobi, the loveable pup who followed Dion Leonard across a gruelling 155-mile trek across the Gobi Desert, and her mischievous cat sister, Lara, who runs away from her family, seeking a courageous adventure and different life. Lara doesn't realise how good she has it in her home in Edinburgh with her owners, Dion and Lucja, and of course her sister, Gobi. If she's being honest, she's jealous of Gobi's fame and the international attention she has received ever since Dion found her. Okay, Gobi may have survived an ultra-marathon across the Gobi Desert, but it's not as if Lara doesn't earn her fresh prawns! She dreams about the day when she can go outdoors and see the world, discover new friends and be free to make her own name. But Lara's wishful thinking gets the better of her as she takes a leap into the unknown and is forced to decide between her loyalties to her family and need to experience an adventure to rival Gobi's. Join Lara in her eventful travels from Edinburgh to France, Beijing to Australia, where she is faced with challenges that will change her life forever. Following on from the astounding real-life story of Dion Leonard, this fictionalised tale is a must-read for animal lovers everywhere.

La búsqueda de Gobi

Author: Dion Leonard Narrator: Alejandro Vargas-Lugo Release Date: August 2017

Esta es la milagrosa historia de Dion Leonard, un corredor experimentado que se encuentra a una luchadora, perrita callejera mientras compite en una carrera de 150 millas a través del desierto de Gobi. La adorable cachorro, que luego fue nombrada "Gobi", demostró que lo que le falta en tamaño, lo compensa con el corazón, a medida que recorrió paso a paso junto a Dion las montañas Tian Shan, a través de enormes dunas de arena, aldeas y las arenas negras del desierto de Gobi, manteniendo el ritmo con él durante casi 80 millas. Dion fue testigo de la increíble determinación y corazón de este pequeño animal, y se dio cuenta que su propio corazón experimentaba también un cambio. Mientras que en el pasado estas competencias se trataban de ganar y ser el mejor, su objetivo ahora era asegurarse de que su amistad con Gobi continuara mucho después de llegar a la meta. Dion permitía que Gobi durmiera en su tienda de campaña por las noches, le compartía agua y alimentos de sus propias provisiones limitadas, la llevaba a través de ríos, aun sabiendo que eso significaría retrasarse en la carrera, o peor aún, le impedería terminar en absoluto. Aunque Dion no llegó a la meta en primer lugar, sentía que había ganado algo aún mejor, una nueva perspectiva de la vida y una nueva amiga a quien tenía planeado llevar a casa tan pronto como le fuera posible. Sin embargo, antes de que pudiera llevarla a casa, Gobi desapareció en la inmensa ciudad china, pero Dion, con la ayuda de desconocidos y el apoyo desbordante por medio de internet, logró encontrarla, juntándose para siempre con el asombroso animal que cambió su vida y le demostró a él y al mundo que los milagros son posibles.

Finding Gobi: A Little Dog with a Very Big Heart Audiobook

Finding Gobi: A Little Dog with a Very Big Heart

Author: Dion Leonard, Simon Bubb Narrator: Simon Bubb Release Date: June 2017

A man, a dog, and the lengths to which love will go to sacrifice for its companion. Finding Gobi 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 77 miles. As Dion witnessed the incredible determination and heart of this small animal, he found his own heart undergoing a change as well. Whereas in the past these races were all about winning and being the best, his goal now was to make sure he and Gobi's friendship continued well after the finish line. He found himself letting Gobi sleep in his tent at night, giving her food and water out of his own limited supply, and carrying her across numerous rivers, even when he knew it would mean putting him behind in the race, or worse, prevent him from finishing at all. Although Dion did not cross the finish line first, he felt he had won something even greater - a new outlook on life and a new friend that he planned on bringing home as soon as arrangements were made. However, before he could take her home, Gobi went missing in the sprawling Chinese city where she was being kept. Dion, with the help of strangers and a viral outpouring of assistance on the internet, set out to track her down, and reunite forever with the amazing animal that changed his life and proved to him and the world that miracles are possible.
