Summary
"As a young runner, Aganetha Smart defied everyone's expectations to win a gold medal for Canada in the 1928 Olympics. It was a revolutionary victory, because this was the first Games in which women could compete in track events--and they did so despite opposition. But now Aganetha Smart is in a nursing home, and nobody realizes that the frail centenarian was once a bold pioneer"--Amazon.com

Summary
As a young runner, Aganetha Smart became a celebrity by winning a gold medal for Canada in the 1928 Olympics. Now, at age 104, she lives alone in a nursing home, all but forgotten by history, until two young strangers appear asking to interview her. Still yearning for adventure, she readily agrees and the two strangers take her on an outing across rural Ontario to the farm where she was raised, causing Aganthea to reflect on her childhood and her struggles to make an independent life for herself.
