Bruce Lee

This biography of Bruce Lee is a high-interest, low-vocabulary book for adolescents and adults with limited literacy skills. Bruce Lee (1940 - 1973), to some, remains the greatest martial artist of all time. Born in San Francisco, he spent much of his childhood in Hong Kong, where he developed an interest for acting. Bullied at school, he learned martial arts to protect himself. After getting into trouble with the law, his parents sent Bruce back to San Francisco, where he discovered a love of philosophy. Bruce became a master at training others to balance their bodies and minds while developing their martial arts skills. Bruce then returned to acting, co-starring in The Green Hornet. His breakout film, The Fists of Fury, opened the door for Bruce to starring in Hollywood movies.
