Product Details

Praise

“Lang brings her subject’s early years to life through small details. . . . Cooper’s pastels keep to a brown, grainy palette, recalling the Georgia dirt on which the track star ran as a child.” —School Library Journal

“From the hardships of her Georgia childhood through the 1948 London Olympics at which she won gold and became a legend, this biography stands out for the lesser-known details it includes (e.g. Coachman’s dance performance aboard the London-bound ship). Cooper’s grainy sepia-hued pastels are striking; endnotes with more about Coachman and the historic 1948 Olympics support the thorough text.” —The Horn Book
