A Fine first printing of the first edition in a Near Fine dust-jacket with some shelfwear, signed and inscribed by author Jim Ryun on the title page.

In Quest of Gold traces Ryun's amazing rise from hopeful young boy (he beat an Olympic gold medalist and set a new American record before he entered high school) to the pinnacle of the athletic world as three-time Olympian and world-record holder for the mile, half mile, and 1500 meters between 1966 and 1975. The world records he set in 1500 meters and one mile are among middle-distance running's greatest feats (from the dust-jacket).
