Hank Aaron: Brave in Every Wayby Peter Golenbock, Paul Lee (Illustrator)
Before blacks were allowed to play in the major leagues, Hank was determined that that was where he was going to
Before blacks were allowed to play in the major leagues, Hank was determined that that was where he was going to play. When his success in the field triggered a deluge of hate mail, he refused to back down. This is the moving story of Hank Aaron's strength and perseverance--of how he became a great ballplayer and an inspiration to us all.
"Takes the real-life tale of baseball slugger Hank Aaron and fashions it into a fable of hope, endurance, and faith."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
