Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Part of the series "Junior Hispanics of Achievement" which offers captivating accounts of the lives of notable men and women. Clemente was the first Puerto Rican to achieve fame in the major leagues and was the first Latino player elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Unfortunately his life was cut short while on a humanitarian mission. Black-and-white photographs, chronology, bibliography, statistics and index round out the text.
