Listing Detail Tabs

By Dick Francis

This is Lester's own book. This, from the inside, is the story of the figure the public instantly recognises, has cheered for thirty-seven years, yet hardly knows.

Read here of the childhood that formed the man, of the triumphs and catastrophes that rocked but never destroyed a strongly maturing genius. Learn the unpublished facts behind the punishment for rough riding in his youth, and know the truth beneath the stormy accusations of stealing other jockeys' mounts.

Here too is the private man at home, living and loving, taking his fame easily, enduring his disappointments in silence, looking always to tomorrow.
