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.

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
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.

Terry Fox was the Hero that Canada always needed. He was also the hero that we lost way too quickly. As I held this book in my hand and looked at his wonderful 1970's snapshoots and cringed at the page with his personal handwriting.
Although I have a love/hate relationship with Douglas Coupland
work he clearly understands Canada and it's need for heros and shows a private side of Terry Fox the man.
Since Terry Fox has already won a place in the hearts of Canada maybe the world should know more about the story of the young man who used every cell in his body to fight the disease that was cuting his life way too shot.
Douglas Coupland tells us the story of Canada's hero and it a story the world needs to know with detail that we about our modern anti-heros like Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein.

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.
