“Mark Hebscher has brought to life George Washington Orton for all of us to enjoy with his book “The Greatest Athlete (you’ve never heard of). Well, we have now! Mark’s research and writing skills combined with his finding so many historical pictures capture a person and a time that had escaped us. A job well done, Mark.”
“Chasing ghosts is a mug’s game. More so, when the ghost is a world class turn-of-the-century runner. But Mark Hebscher is dogged, tracking down the bizarrely under-told story of Canadian athletic legend George Orton, a steeplechase phenom who knew something about pace. As does author Hebscher. His book is a commendable yarn, and a race to the finish.”
“I liked that you mixed in other sports, like Jack Dempsey boxing and Man ‘O War horse racing. That Orton was some kind of guy. Too bad he didn’t spend more time in Canada, or we’d all know about him. Great story, though. Good work, Mark. I really enjoyed your book”.
