Guts and Glory book signing
The Arctic Skiers Who Challenged the World
YELLOWKNIFE, Feb. 18 /CNW/ - Join Olympic cross country trailblazing skiers Sharon and Shirley Firth and author Sally Manning at Canada's Northern House, Friday, February 19, 2010 at noon for an informal chat and book signing. As the Olympic Winter Games continue in Vancouver, their book, Guts and Glory: The Arctic Skiers Who Challenged the World recreates one of the most remarkable eras in Canadian Olympic history.
It brings to life the amazing saga of Canada's cross-country pioneers - the talented young Aboriginal racers from Inuvik, Northwest Territories, who skied to international glory in the late 1960s and 1970s. When these kids blazed their way to the Olympics, they set the stage for today's Canadian stars.
