Grand Trail by brothers Alexis and Frédéric is a worship-inspiring coffee table-worthy tome of
- 16 [famous] ultrarunner portraits (Killian Jornet, Anton Krupicka, Scott Jurek, Anna Frost to name a few)
- 13 [also noteworthy] trail races portraits (from the more widely known like Western States and Hardrock 100 to ones new to me like Ultra-Trail Mt. Fuji and Lavaredo Ultra)
- 16 meta chapters including ultrarunner profiling, trail racing history, ultra physiology and race conditions
- and a list of 150 ultras by country (along with elevation gains)
Every mile relayed through wonderful essays and 100s of gorgeous photographs with storytelling captions.
