9781519209665: Good's Run: The World's Longest Run

This first-person account of the world's longest run captures an astounding, but almost unknown feat of human endurance, spirit, and will. Just after the Civil War and before General Custer met his demise at the Little Big Horn, Frederick Good, a young boy from Saint Louis, stows away on a doomed steamship heading up the Missouri to the gold fields in Montana Territory. One morning he awakens to find himself alone on a beached, wrecked steamship in the heart of Indian country. To save himself, he decides to run hundreds of miles through the rough Missouri Breaks and high plains back to Saint Louis. Day after day he runs, carrying no water and having no food. In nine days, he covers over 600 miles. Inspired by the actual accounts of his run in 1867, GOOD'S RUN chronicles the challenges, threats, and terrors he experiences along the way. Frederick's African-American family suffers the aftermath of the Civil War, which still seems to be being fought on the Missouri River. To complicate matters, Good cannot speak. He must overcome much in this coming-of-age story. He runs not only from dangers, but also to find himself.
