Synopsis

Steve Prefontaine Rocketman by Linda Prefontaine, Bree Donovan

Steve Prefontaine was better known to the world as simply Pre . He was more than an exceptional athlete; he was an exceptional person. Pre once said To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the Gift. This book is not about what Pre gained during his short and brilliant life, but what he refused to give up as celebrity status settled inevitably on his shoulders. This unique story of Pre is specifically written for young people. Rocketman is told through the eyes and voice of Owen Morgan. Owen is a literary conduit through which the entirely factual events and characters are presented. The stories Owen shares with the readers are the stories of the people who knew and loved Steve Prefontaine, and the people Pre loved. *Author royalties will go to a special fund established by Linda Prefontaine for physical education and arts programs at Blossom Gulch School in Coos Bay Oregon. Blossom Gulch was both Steve and Linda's former elementary school. Rocketman CD is now available!!
