I was initially given this book as a gift, knew nothing about it, but loved it. It's a great, well put together coffee table book, about an inspiring Canadian role model. As a Canadian export living in the States, it made me nostalgic for Terry Fox Runs from the past :). Highly recommended.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Alfred J. Galat on December 8, 2008
This book gives a close look at Terry Fox, his life, and his humanity. It shows his accomplishments as a wheelchair basketball athlete and gives a peek at two pages of his diary. It shows what it was like to be with Terry during his Marathon of Hope, right down to the sunburn on the left side of his freckled face. It is a treasure of intimacy, the best thing next to have known Terry in this life. I was very pleased with this look at life with the Foxes and how really down-to-earth they are.

This wonderful book is a must-have, I'm so glad I bought it. The pictures go through every aspect of Terry's life, from when he was a kid in school playing in sports teams, up until his funeral, which was very sad. My favorite parts of the book are the pages from his training and marathon diaries. I find myself constantly looking through this book. There's something about this book that draws me in.

I really loved this book. It put the Marathon of Hope in to pictures. I really wanted to know about what was going on and how he really changed a nation.
