The first book in a new horse trilogy from Pulitzer Prize winner Jane Smiley, starring a feisty young rider. Eleven-year-old Ellen is a spunky-and occasionally misbehaving-young riding student. Her teacher, Abby Lovitt (who readers might recognize from The Georges and the Jewels), is a high school student who introduces her to jumping, dressage techniques, and most importantly, Ned. Ned is a colt who used to be a racehorse, until he hurt his leg and moved to Abby´s ranch. Ellen and Ned seem to understand each other, and their companionship is immediate. But Ellen is only allowed to go to riding lessons when she behaves at school. And with all that´s going on, from learning that she´s adopted to finding out her parents are adopting a new baby, it´s harder than ever for Ellen to pay attention and behave in class and at home. Will Ellen be able to spend more time on the ranch with Ned? And will her parents ever let her have a horse of her own?
Pete Sampras is arguably the greatest tennis player ever, a man whose hard-nosed work ethic led to an unprecedented number one world ranking for 286 weeks, and whose prodigious talent made possible a record-setting fourteen Grand Slam titles. While his more vocal rivals sometimes grabbed the headlines, Pete always preferred to let his racket do the talking. Until now. In A Champion´s Mind, the tennis great who so often exhibited visible discomfort with letting people ´´inside his head´´ finally opens up. An athletic prodigy, Pete resolved from his earliest playing days never to let anything get in the way of his love for the game. But while this single-minded determination led to tennis domination, success didn´t come without a price. The constant pressure of competing on the world´s biggest stage-in the unblinking eye of a media machine hungry for more than mere athletic greatness-took its toll. Here for the first time Pete speaks freely about what it was like to possess what he calls ´´the Gift.´´ He writes about the personal trials he faced-including the death of a longtime coach and confidant-and the struggles he gutted his way through while being seemingly on top of the world. Among the book´s most riveting scenes are an early devastating loss to Stefan Edberg that led Pete to make a monastic commitment to delivering on his natural talent; a grueling, four-hour-plus match against Alex Corretja during which Pete became seriously ill; fierce on-court battles with rival and friend Andre Agassi; and the triumphant last match of Pete´s career at the finals of the 2002 U.S. Open. In A Champion´s Mind, one of the most revered, successful, and intensely private players in the history of tennis offers an intimate look at the life of an elite athlete. From the Hardcover edition.
