Morning Edition on 9/13: WALLACE: THE UNDERDOG WHO CONQUERED A SPORT, SAVED A MARRIAGE AND....
What do you think of when you see a pit bull? Do you watch him carefully - whether he's on a leash or not? Are you afraid he could attack at any moment? Unfortunately, that's the reaction most people have when they see or even hear about a pit bull. Fortunately for Wallace not everyone feels that way, like author Jim Gorant, who heard about Wallace and just had to write his story.
The book is called "Wallace: The Underdog Who Conquered a Sport, Saved a Marriage and Championed Pit Bulls - One Flying Disc at a Time." Now don't be put off by the title. Yes, it's a little wordy, but this is a book about stereotypes - about animals and people - and you'll be glad you read it.
Join me as I talk about the incredible story of Wallace with Jim Gorant, Senior Editor at Sports Illustrated and best-selling author of "The Lost Dogs".
