The Strongest Man in the World - The Legend of Louis Cyr

THE STRONGEST MAN IN THE WORLD
THE LEGEND OF LOUIS CYR

BY LUCIE PAPINEAU, ILLUSTRATED BY CAROLINE HAMEL

Follow the adventures of larger-than-life, kind-hearted Louis, the strongest man in the world!

The Strongest Man in the World is a true story that reads like a Paul Bunyan tall tale. Cyprien-Noé was born into a poor family in a small village in Quebec, Canada in 1863. At the age of 8 he found a 100-pound calf that was stuck in the mud, lifted it up to his chin and carried it home over his shoulders. At 12, he came upon an injured man in the woods and carried him back to his horse and wagon. News of his strength spread. He changed his name to Louis Cyr, and, at age 18, he began traveling the United States, Canada and Europe, performing increasingly impressive feats of strength. At a performance in Boston when touring with Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circuses, Cyr lifted 350 pounds with one hand. He entered contests, bested other strong men, and eventually became known around the globe as the “Strongest Man in the World”. 

A FREE, full-color poster featuring a timeline of Louis Cyr’s life, a list of his records, and over 15 fully captioned historical photographs featuring the strongest man in action is printed on the reverse side of the book’s jacket.
