Picture Book of Jesse Owens The story of Jesse Owens, who won four gold medals at the 1936 Olympics, is told in dramatic colour pictures and short narrative passages. His rise to fame is portrayed in the context of the historical period, his treatment in Hitler's Germany, and the racism he still encountered at home, despite the huge parades and celebrations of his victories.
