During the Depression the ebullient American entrepreneur Charles Flanagan assembles 2,000 runners from all corners of the earth, to run from Los Angeles to New York for prize-money of $150,000. Flanagan's Trans-America runners face 3,000 miles, across the Mojave desert and the frozen Rockies, running a daily average of 50 miles for three months. The American sports establishment, however, is desperate to crush what it sees as a professional challenge to the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics. Every day is therefore a struggle for survival, for Flanagan himself as well as the runners. Flanagan's Run is an epic tale, and a testimony to the strength of the human spirit.

    " Audiobook. Kept me entertained during many a morning workout but much longer than it should have been and some things were just too implausible for me (i.e, the Capone run-in and outcome, and the evil Olympic chairman), but likeable characters and in general it is sort of a shout out to runners. "

    " Enjoyable story of the first American cross country foot race in the 1930's and the obstacles that had to be overcome by its feisty organizer. "

    " I first read this as a teen when it came out as a Reader's Digest condensed book. I loved it so much that when I was older I found a paperback copy and held on to it for years. When I found out it was available for Kindle I bought it. I would have paid triple the price! "
