The Olympic Odyssey: Rekindling the True Spirit of the Great Games

Front Cover
Quest Books, 2003 - Sports & Recreation - 257 pages
"To explore this territory, Cousineau interweaves mythology, religion, and sports history, quoting from Homer to Whitman, Jim Thorpe to Babe Didrikson, and Yeats to Yogi Berra. His exuberant call to revive the ancient Greek ideal of integrating body, mind, and spirit reminds us that the Games provide marvelous metaphors for how to go about any venture: with passion and compassion, focus and fairness, and a sense for the sacred play at the heart of life."--BOOK JACKET.
