Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From humble beginnings and a childhood marked by disease and poverty, Jesse Owens sprinted to Olympic gold.  His success in the 1936 Berlin games was a victory for equality--and an affront to Nazi leader Adolf Hitlers view of Aryan supremacy.  The story of this exceptional athlete will fascinate kids.

- Learn about his near-death experience at only 5 years old

- Relive the perfect day when Jesse broke three world records—and equaled another

- See how an act of kindness to an opponent cost him a race, but won fans hearts.

- Follow his entire amazing Olympic triumph
