Description: Part of the popular American ValueTale series, this book tells the story of amputee basketball player and athlete, Terrance Fox, and how he raised money for cancer research by running across Canada in his famous Marathon of Hope.
Because it is aimed at children, the text is not the usual biographical prose, but rather has been written in the form of a narrative – making it more appealing to younger readers.
Humorous and nostalgic full-colour illustrations appear on every page.
Some pages show signs of handling, with one or two containing some minor marks, though their overall condition is excellent. The boards have some slight pockmarking (the rear more so than the front), but are in good condition otherwise. The spine has some creasing where it meets the boards. Binding is tight.
A rare book.
Measures 26 cm × 20 cm (10.4″ × 8″). 4to. 61 pp.
