From Megan McCarthy, the award-winning author of and "Earmuffs for Everyone," comes the "The Wildest Race Ever," the quirky, fascinating, and inspiring story of perseverance and the importance of sportsmanship set at the 1904 St. Louis Olympic Marathon. Forty-two racers registered, thirty-two showed up, and of the three racers vying for the finish line, one drove part way and one was helped by his trainers over the line. How they ran and who won is a story of twists and turns that wouldn't be believed if it weren't true!
