WILLISTON, Floyd. Johnny Miles : Nova Scotia's Marathon King. Preface by Bruce Kidd, Introduction by Will Cloney. Halifax : Nimbus Publishing Limited,(1990). Pp (4),[v]-xiii,(1),[1]-114. Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated grey tr ade paperback. "In 1926, Johnny Miles won the Boston Marathon in world-record time. The story of the delivery boy from Cape Breton winning one of the era's most prestigious athletic crowns was irresistible, and Miles became an instant celebrity. He went on to claim victory again in Boston in 1929, to compete in two Olympiads, and to win a bronze medal in the first British Empire Games--the precursor to today's Commonwealth Games. Floyd Williston,a native of Nova Scotia now living in Winnipeg, examines the age and the e nvironment that spawned the determined marathoner. He reveals how the support of Miles' family and community pulled him through periods of humiliationand kept him running for 10 years." - from the rear cover. Vg. 10.00
