Keefer: The People s Choice is the true story of a racing Greyhound s tumultuous, injury-plagued, journey to domination during the 1980s. Hairline fractures and bone chips, subterfuge and jinxes, among other things, threatened Keefer s path into the history books, but he ducked and dodged, staking a claim on the come-back trail time after time, breaking records, reeling in fans and journalists with aplomb and charisma. Besides being a triumph-over-adversity narrative, the book provides a candid historical view of Greyhound racing in America a view that has too often been ignored, or skewed, by the contemporary media machine.

About the Author:

Leslie A. Wootten s journey to Keefer began when she was born into a Greyhound racing family. After obtaining two graduate degrees in literature and writing from Arizona State University, she began to work as an historian specializing in the sport that remained a vital touchstone in her life. She is a frequent contributor to the National Greyhound Association s magazine, The Greyhound Review. In addition to writing a monthly column for Arizona Player, her work has appeared in a variety of national publications. She lives in Casa Grande, Arizona, with her husband and a retired racing Thoroughbred and two retired racing Greyhounds. For every book she sells, a donation is made to the American Greyhound Council s grant fund for Greyhound pet adoption.
