Running with Sherman by Christopher McDougall

I am obsessed with Sherman the donkey and his crazy story of becoming a marathoner with his human, the great runner and writer Christopher McDougall. After he is rescued from an abusive owner, Sherman’s new family and the larger rural community surrounding his new home come together to save his life and introduce him to the joys of life, friends, and running. If you’re looking for a feel-good book this holiday season, this is one you’ll want to check out. - Jax

The National Team by Caitlin Murray

Soccer friends, here is your perfect read in the run-up to the Women’s World Cup this summer. The National Team is a lively and substantive history of the U.S. Women’s National Team, from its scrappy early days in the ‘80s to the legendary ‘99ers and up to now. Moving beyond the highlight reel to the storied complexity of women’s soccer in America, this book sheds light on these tenacious, trailblazing athletes, not just as stars but as advocates for women’s rights and gender equity in sports and beyond. - Melinda

Some Stories by Yvon Chouinard

Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia, brings it all together in this gorgeous, photo-filled book that spans his life and his many passions, from climbing to surfing, spearfishing to falconry, and business to environmental activism. A collection of essays, articles, letters, and poetry handpicked by Chouinard himself, Some Stories is likely as close to a memoir as we will get from this unequaled adventurer. In the preface, he writes, “I don’t consider myself much of a writer, I’m more of a story teller really”—and this is the perfect way to hear him speak. - Melinda

The Cost of These Dreams by Wright Thompson

Wright Thompson is one of America’s best long-form sportswriters because his stories are never “just” about sports. Thompson explores sports through the lenses of people, politics, regions, culture, and history with a deft eye, keen wit, and profound empathy, and delivers his stories through gorgeous prose. Thompson is a treasure, and while this collection is a must-read for sports fans, non–sports fans will absolutely be able to appreciate and enjoy Thompson’s writing, too. - Stuart

Tigerbelle by Wyomia Tyus

Wyomia Tyus, a record-setting track and field Olympian (1964 and 1968), should be as well-known as Tommie Smith and John Carlos for her political activism or as Wilma Rudolph for her athletic prowess, but we are still challenged with broadening representation beyond iconic representatives. Now is the time to add Tyus to the pantheon of great Black women athletes and citizens, and this is the book, her enjoyable accounting of a remarkable life. - Melinda
