    Among the runners of C. C. Pyle's First Annual International
    Transcontinental Foot Race were an assortment of underdogs, including
    twenty-year-old Oklahoman and part Cherokee Andy Payne, who wanted to
    win over the girl of his dreams and pay off the mortgage on his family's
    farm; Paul "Hardrock" Simpson, who was in over his head but couldn't
    let down his North Carolina hometown; Mike Kelly, a luckless boxer from
    Indiana; Seattle's Ed Gardner, one of four black runners who encountered
    bigotry; Charles Hart, a sixty-three-year-old Englishman hoping his
    best days weren't behind him; and Frank Johnson, a middle-aged husband,
    father, and steelworker from St. Louis who broke away from his humdrum
    life and dared to do something different.

    Newspaper and magazine journalist Geoff Williams details this historic
    event and the colorful cast of characters involved, based on firsthand
    accounts of those who were there and interviews from many living
    descendants. C. C. Pyle's Amazing Foot Race is a classic American story so astonishing and surreal that you have to hear it to believe it.
