By Pat Zietlow Miller and Illustrated by Frank Morrison
"The Quickest Kid in Clarksville" by Madison-based author Pat Zietlow Miller talks about Alta, the quickest kid in Clarksville, Tennessee. When Alta is challenged to a race by a new girl in town whose running shoes are new and shiny, Alta looks to her hero Wilma Rudolph, three-time Olympic gold medalist, to try her best in the race even though her shoes are full of holes. "The Quickest Kid in Clarksville" is a timeless story of dreams, determination, and the power of friendship.
