9780029017609: Jesse Owens: An American Life

The tenth and last child of an Alabama sharecropper, Jesse Owens grew up to win an unprecedented four gold medals at the 1936 Olympics. Far from a simple rags-to-riches fable, Owens's story embodies the complex hopes, ideals, and convictions of a celebrated black athlete caught up in an era of turbulent social change. 16-page photo insert.

Review:

"This book goes far beyond the Jesse Owens of the record books, the legendary winner of four Olympic gold medals and the setter of six world records in a single afternoon 's burst of eternal glory. Jesse Owens delves more deeply into Owens the man and, even more significantly, introduces us to his life before and after his brief term as an unforgettable athlete. It is must reading for all who are interested in the man still regarded by most as the greatest track and field athlete in history." Bert Nelson, editor of Track & Field News
