Land of Second Chances by Tim Lewis

Adrien Niyonshuti was 7 years old when he lost his family in the 1994 genocide that tore Rwanda apart. Almost 20 years later, he represented his country—and was flag bearer—at the London Olympics. In Land of Second Chances, Tim Lewis charts the incredible true story of the Rwandan cycling team as they overcome impossible odds to inspire a nation. “Land of Second Chances is by turns horrifying, moving and unexpectedly funny. It’s also the sports book of the year by a backcountry mile.” —Esquire UK

Clemente: the True Legacy of an Undying Hero

As much of a trailblazer as Puerto Rican baseball player Roberto Clemente was on the field—the first Latin player elected to the Hall of Fame; the first World Series MVP and the first to win an MVP award—he was even more highly regarded off of it. Devoted to humanitarian causes, Clemente died in a plane crash on New Year’s Eve in 1972 while delivering emergency supplies to earthquake-stricken Nicaragua. Just months earlier, in his final at-bat of the regular season, he joined elite company with his 3000th hit. Clemente led an incredible life, and this book, put together by his family, is a loving and inspirational tribute to the 15-time All Star and a truly great man.
