Review: Kings of the Road (2013)

By Cameron Stracher

This received a long review in The Buffalo News. You can read the entire text by clicking here.

Short version - this is the abbreviated story of the era when American runners dominated the world stage when it came to marathons. It focuses on men like Frank Shorter, Bill Rodgers and Alberto Salazar. The book makes some very interesting points along the way about the history of American running, and what prompted a couple of major changes. I just wish it had been longer.

Three stars
