Publisher's Summary

Raven Kraft has changed the lives of thousands who have run with him - many of them hundreds of times. From all 50 states and dozens of countries, across all age groups and backgrounds, they come to run with Raven, and in the process find friendship, inspiration - and a nickname.
Among them is author Laura Lee "White Lightning" Huttenbach, who has logged over 1,000 miles of Raven Runs. Here she explores the stories of dozens of others about why they started running with Raven - and why they keep coming back. Taxman, an accountant in his mid-60s, has done 1800+ runs. Dizzy, a middle school principal from Cuba, met his wife and his best friend on Raven Runs. Butcher, an ex-convict, credits Raven with saving his life.
In an uncertain world Raven shows up, no matter what. Quirky and appealing, tenacious and magnetic, Raven is a legend of the running world. As he says, "I may be the only thing that hasn't changed around here in the last 40 years." Laura Lee Huttenbach reveals how one man's daily ritual has blossomed into an uncanny gift for weaving people together - and an invaluable reminder that the journey means little without the connections forged along the way.

Hmmmm....

There is a good story here but I was left wanting. I think the author truly wanted to pay tribute to someone she admired in life. Instead of writing about her life and the impact The Raven had on her, it came across as notes from interviews. Their were intimate details that had the power to stir emotion but felt perfunctory.

The narrative was okay, likely impacted by the way the story was told. I wasn't fond of the voice for the main character.

Go on a journey w Raven

I wasn’t sure what to expect and so thought it a little slow at the start but really I just needed to be patient and let the story unfold. In the end I was taken on a journey w an unique individual to whom running was the essence of his life. I enjoyed it in the end and listened to it during my evening jogs. So essentially I was running w Raven.
