Jackie Robinson and the American Dilemma (Library of American Biography) Reviews
The tale was interesting and the book itself provided sufficient room to be annotated. I aced the test! I recommend this version of print to anyone who is interested in Jackie Robinson's story and the difficulties he overcame. Enjoy your reading!
Great book, was required for high school reading
I read this book on Jackie Robinson expecting it to be about baseball and got a history lesson on civil rights as well. John Wilson combines his two passions in life, Baseball and History. Easy to read with great stories both on and off the field. Highly recommended.
