Weatherford, Carole. Jesse Owens: Fastest Man Alive. New York: Walker & Company, 2006.
The Fastest Man Alive is about Jesse Owens. The story tells a lot about him, although the pictures were not very descriptive. The words were very confusing. They skipped around from the beginning of a race to the end when he was a glorious winner. I think I would understand Jesse better if the book wouldn't have skipped around so much. I would not recommend this book to anyone. If I were to recommend this book to someone it would be 7th and 8th graders.
