Summary
"[I]ntroduces young readers to a fascinating, little-known event--the Transcontinental Foot Race--which came to be known as the Bunion Derby. It is set in 1928, the height of the Roaring Twenties--a time of optimism, a time of excess, and the Age of Ballyhoo... More than 100 men of all races and nationalities started the race in California and faced all manner of obstacles--from extreme weather to poor food and living conditions, to prejudice to injury--to make the cross-country journey across the United States, ending in New York City."--
