A book to check out
Listener F. Irigoyen sent a message about this book about the Raramuri's amazing sport rarajipari:
You surely have read or at least heard of “Born to Run: a Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World has ever Seen” a bestseller book by Christopher McDougall. McDougall’s pen describes the feats of Tarahumara runners at the Leadville, Colorado ultra-marathon intertwined with his mythical search of “Caballo Blanco”, an elusive gringo who lives among the Tarahumara and has leaned to run like them. The breathtaking narrative does justice to the incredible endurance and
resistance of the Tarahumara runners. Born to Run though says little about the race the Tarahumara regularly perform in their mountains and canyons. Their sport and a cultural event that in many ways define the Tarahumara people in their homeland, their sport rarajípari —the kick-ball race— is as the athletes that run it an amazing thing. For this reason Don Quixote Editions is publishing in
Kindle® format Rarajípari, the Tarahumara Indian Kick-ball Race. This book will let you know in detail the most strenuous sport regularly practiced in this planet.
The book authors are the book’s best warranty: Fructuoso Irigoyen, MD., who lived ten years among the Tarahumaras and is author of "Cerocahui, una Comunidad en la Tarahumara", and Jesús Manuel Palma, a full-blood Tarahumara who has devoted himself to study the language and costumes of his own people.
