Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This re-creation of the bond that developed between a white and an African American youngster begins in 1982, when 13-year-old Bryne Rich, who is white, fatally shot a friend in a hunting accident; for the better part of a year he was psychologically devastated, until he attended a basketball camp and drew as a coach Dennis Rodman, then a star player for Southeastern Oklahoma State. The 22-year-old Rodman was also a troubled young man, having grown up in a fatherless family of three women and having been in constant trouble in his home city of Dallas. A friendship developed between the two, and during the next three years Rodman often visited the Riches in Bokchito, Oklahoma, in the heart of redneck country. Byrne Rich's parents were enormously grateful to Rodman for helping their son overcome his grief and he in turn led them to greater racial understanding. Rodman, Pat Rich (Byrne's mother) and Steinberg (coauthor of Behind the Mask ) have written an affecting story of scarred youth, racial tension and healing. Photos not seen by PW. (Feb.)
Library Journal
In 1982, Bryne Rich accidently killed his best friend while hunting. Unfortunately, he could not be reconciled to the death of his buddy and suffered nightmares and depression. Ironically, it was Rodman, another young, troubled individual, who helped Bryne adjust to the tragedy. The two met at a basketball camp sponsored by Rodman's college team. Their comradeship took off immediately, and Rodman became a regular guest at the Rich home. The situation was complicated by racism in the town of Bokchito, Oklahoma. Ultimately, Rich healed with the help of his friend. As for Rodman, the association led to a new-found motivation, ultimately leading to his being drafted into the National Basketball Association. This easy-to-read, heartwarming story is recommended for large sports collections.-- L.R. Little, Penticton P.L., B.C.
Wes Lukowsky
Rodman is the National Basketball Association's premier rebounder as well as one of its most controversial citizens. He currently cleans the glass for the San Antonio Spurs, but he made his name as the prototype "bad boy" of the Detroit Pistons. While working as a counselor at a summer basketball camp, Rodman, then an insecure recruit at Southeastern Oklahoma, met Bryne Rich. Ten years younger than Rodman, Rich was immersed in a depression stemming from accidentally shooting his best friend. The two lost souls connected, and Rodman eventually moved in with the Rich family. This account of their friendship, coauthored by Rodman, Rich's mother, Pat, and freelance writer Alan Steinberg (coauthor of "Behind the Mask" [1990]), is no sugar-coated fairy tale. Both Rodman and the Rich family felt the sting of racism in rural Oklahoma. The account of their time together, how they persevered as Rodman matured and the Riches learned not to prejudge based on race or background, is not really a basketball story; instead, it's a moving family drama, and it teaches us that family ties have less to do with blood relations than we might think.
