by Mary Wilds
Price: $19.95
A Forgotten Champion
Click to enlarge

"The story of Marshall "Major" Taylor, an American who in the early years of the Twentieth Century earned the title 'fastest bicycle racer in the world' by the simple expedient of beating all comers.  Almost entirely forgotten now, Taylor in his day was a world famous celebrity, one of the first international superstars of sport.  And he just happened to be black.  Before Jackie Robinson, even before Jack Jackson, Major Taylor was a champion whose life and career were by turns inspiring, controversial and tragic.  But no one can doubt he was a true pioneer, whose story should be more widely known."

Illustrated with black and white photos.
