"Surviving the Toughest Race on Earth" by Martin Dugard is a non fiction book. It is a story about Martin and how he quits his job as a writer to cover extreme racing. The main endurance race is called the raid and it is universally known as the hardest race on the face of the planet. Because of its intense nature it has helped create other extreme racing events like the Eco-Challenge in America. After covering the raid a couple of times, Martin decides to create a team of his own. He wants to run in the raid and see exactly how hard the raid truly is. If you enjoy endurance racing and being outdoors, then you will enjoy reading about how people survive when they are thrust into harsh environments.
