Defying Hitler: Jesse Owens' Olympic Triumph

by Nel Yomtov
Illustrated by Eduardo Garcia

At the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany, the last thing Adolf Hitler expected was to see a black man compete and win. But Jesse Owens didn't just win. He was dominant in the track and field events, winning four gold medals and helping to set a world record. Now readers can witness one of the most iconic moments in sports history as Owens proves that people of all races can compete and win at the Olympic games. The Capstone Interactive edition comes with simultaneous access for every student in your school and includes read aloud audio recorded by professional voice over artists.

School Library Journal, Series Made Simple - Abby Bussen, Muskego Public Library

"Legendary moments in U.S. sports history are brought to life. Each author sets the scene before diving into the main topic. . . .Critical thinking questions at the end of each book encourage students to dive deeper. . . .Where collections are in need of more options for reluctant nonfiction readers, these will fit the bill." - School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
