A Crown of Wild Olive by Rosemary Sutcliff is a children’s book about two athletes who discover the meaning of friendship when competing in the Olympics

A Crown of Wild Olive was the title given to the Rosemary Sutcliff story The Truce of the Games (1971) when it was re-published in 1972 in the USA in an omnibus collection of stories, Heather, Oak and Olive. That collection also included The Chief’s Daughter and A Circlet of Oak Leaves.
