"Even if I don't finish, we need others to continue. It's got to keep going." --Terry Fox

Dozens of photographs and simple, evocative text combine to tell the story of Terry's life and legacy--how he grew up loving sports and competition, always determined to finish what he started; how he developed cancer and lost his leg; how he trained day after day, on one strong leg and a prosthetic limb, with the idea that he might try to run across Canada; how he managed to make it two--thirds of the way before cancer returned; and how by so doing, he inspired millions of people around the world and raised millions of dollars for cancer research.

The hardcover edition of this important book, created in cooperation with the Terry Fox Foundation and Terry's family, was the first authorized biography of Terry Fox ever written specifically for children. This new paperback edition includes eight new pages of information about Terry and his legacy.

Found this after my six year-old asked who Terry Fox was. This book is scrapbook style with family photos, postcards, etc. My kids poured over it and requested me to read it again and again.
