Ce livre, cr#65533;#65533; en collaboration avec la famille de Terry Fox et la fondation portant son nom, est la premi#65533;re biographie autoris#65533;e de Terry Fox #65533;crite pour les jeunes.

Des douzaines de photographies #65533;loquentes accompagn#65533;es de textes simples relatent l'histoire de Terry Fox et de son h#65533;ritage. On y raconte sa jeunesse, son amour du sport, l'apparition de son cancer, l'amputation de sa jambe et son entra#65533;nement pour r#65533;aliser son r#65533;ve de traverser le Canada #65533; la course. Avec sa jambe artificielle, Terry Fox a parcouru les deux tiers du pays avant que ne r#65533;apparaisse son cancer. Il n'a peut-#65533;tre pas termin#65533; sa course, mais des millions de personnes dans le monde entier ont pris le relais. Chaque ann#65533;e, la course Terry Fox permet d'amasser des fonds pour financer la recherche sur le cancer.

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.
