Description



Book Synopsis



An extraordinary, deeply inspirational photo essay traces the path of wrestler and wheelchair racer Zion Clark to become the first American man to compete in both the Olympics and Paralympics.

This stunning photographic essay showcases Zion Clark's ferocious athleticism and undaunted spirit. It features striking, visually arresting images and an approachable and engaging text cowritten by New York Times best-selling journalist James S. Hirsch, including pieces of advice that have motivated Zion toward excellence and passages from Zion himself. The book explores Zion's journey from a childhood lost in the foster care system to his hard-fought rise as a high school wrestler to his current rigorous training to prepare as an elite athlete on the world stage. Included are a biography and a note from Zion.

This first in a trilogy of books to be written by Zion Clark, subject of an award-winning Netflix short documentary, focuses on his quest for Olympic and Paralympic gold and is publishing in time for the 2021 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic games.
