‘Spirit Runner’ by Richard Ferguson

“Come on, Ronnie!  You can do it!  Head up, shoulders back, and run!”  Ron Campbell, a seven-year-old boy, is a talented runner, the son of an Olympic marathoner.

When he rides with his family to his grandfather’s ranch, the car crashes.  Everyone is killed except him.  His legs are mangled and paralyzed.  In spite of his condition, he wants to be an Olympic marathoner like his father.  His grandparents take him in, but his aunt, her husband and their son also live at the ranch.  They want the grandfather to leave the ranch to them when he dies since he is very old. 

The grandfather decides he will leave the ranch to Ron. Ron’s step-uncle plans to get rid of him one way or another.  The grandfather hires a therapist who decides to use the goal of Olympic marathoner as a tool to rehabilitate Ron.  Ron has many barriers to overcome.
