Annotation In this sports biography, ESPN journalist Jeremy Schaap recounts the prehistory of Jesse Owens's dramatic performance at the 1936 Olympics, which were held in Berlin, Germany during Hitler's rule. Schaap tells of Owens's youth and his early successes in track and field, as well as the intense training required for the games, and the awareness of their political contexts. Drawing on interviews with family members, and brushing aside some accumulated legends, Schaap brings forth Owens's true accomplishments.
