Jim Thorpe was one of the greatest athletes who ever lived. He played professional football and Major League baseball, and won Olympic gold medals in track and field. But his life wasn’t easy. Born on a reservation, he endured family tragedy and was sent to various Native American boarding schools. Jim ran away from school many times, until he found his calling under the now-legendary coach Pop Warner. This is a book for history buffs as well as sports fans—an illuminating and lively read about a truly great American by award-winning author Joseph Bruchac.

“The novel is a superb blend of fiction and nonfiction, rooted in the author’s usual careful research.” —Kirkus Reviews
