Description
A long-distance walker who was inspired by the story of the first marathon runner after her own first marathon, Susan Reynolds retells the ancient Greek story of Pheidippides, a herald for the army of Athens. Pheidippides was chosen to run 140 miles from Athens to Sparta to seek help in battling the invading Persians. He ran another 140 miles back with the news that help would not arrive in time, then marched with his army to fight at Marathon, and ran once again from Marathon back to Athens to announce a Greek victory. Reynolds' well-researched book, for readers 5 to 8, is illustrated with colorful block-printed images styled after Greek pottery.
