I am writing a report on my American hero, and Jesse Owens is the epitome of American heroes. This book was so helpful with writing my paper and the facts are astounding, I barely knew any of the facts that were in there, and they were really interesting. Go out and read this book!

I met Jesse Owens in 1979! I was working at a print shop in Tampa, Florida and this old black man came strolling through the door with a bunch of old black and white picture and he asked me if I could reprint them and enlarge them for him. I started looking at all of the pictures and noticed he was a runner and asked him who was in the pictures. He said it was him, then proceeded to tell me his story. I was so shocked and amazed. He told me about going to the Olympics in Germany and how he kept winning medals and Hitler didn't like it and left. Wow! I couldn't believe what I was hearing. He obviously died shortly after that. The world is a better place for having him in it.
