Product Overview

Can you hear the footsteps coming up behind you? As author and coach Ken Foreman began his career, he could feel society pressing in around him. Yet out of the biases and prejudices of the ?60s, this man dared to challenge tradition. He had no choice, for a star blazed into his life, one who would not be dimmed. At a time when women were not considered marketable athletes, this man saw the promise in future Olympian and world champion Doris Brown. He seized the opportunity to coach one of the finest athletes in history, and the book is their true story, as coach and athlete. Doris Brown: Who Always Ran The Extra Mile will cause you to weep and to cheer. Don?t let this one pass you by!
