Description:

"An extraordinary little book . . . invitingly written and brisk."-Chicago Tribune Publishing in 2007, this book marks the sixtieth anniversary of the integration of baseball, when Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier by joining the Brooklyn Dodgers. Renowned broadcaster Scott Simon celebrates Robinson's historical achievement and reveals how Robinson's heroism brought the country face-to-face with the question of racial equality. He deftly traces the journey of the rookie who became Rookie of the Year, recalling the taunts and threats, the stolen bases and the slides to home plate, the trials and triumphs. Scott Simon (Washington, DC), the host of NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday with Scott Simon, has won every major award in broadcasting for his personal essays, war reporting, and commentary. He is also the author of Home and Away: Memoir of a Fan (0-7868-8652-8) and Pretty Birds (0-8129-7330-5), a novel.
