In This Wild and Precious Life, Knight chronicles his love for fell running and adventure racing. His amusing and honest anecdotes give us a glimpse of the exhausting yet exhilarating marathons up and down mountains over the past thirty years. In addition to fell running, Knight tells tales of Adventure Racing challenges where he and his companions combine competitive running, cycling and sailing. Whether you enjoy adventure sports yourself or not, this feel-good novel shows how battling the elements and overcoming personal demons, as well as working as a team, bring a multitude of benefits. The winners gain neither fame nor fortune, but rather the physical benefits of exercise and the mental benefits of achieving goals and completing challenges simply for the love of it.
