My4-3 More than 1 year ago
Baseball and Country Music by Don Cusic is a well researched book with fascinating data that parallels and emerges the history of the United States. Baby Boomers may be able to relate and recall moments in history; such as civil rights, immigration, inventions (electricity, television) and womens' rights, and how they contributed to the development and popularity of baseball and country music. Many of these "performers" have become heroes due to their career statistics or song lyrics or both. I enjoyed reading this book and came to the realization that history is intertwined in areas we consider completely unrelated.
