Detroit City of Champions: The Story of the Most Important Season in Detroit Sports History by Charles Avison

Detroit City of Champions

Did you know? The Detroit Tigers, Lions and Red Wings all won their first Championships in the same season (1935-1936)?

Or, that Joe Louis, rose from an unknown to an international superstar in that same season? Or, that Detroit athletes would claim World records and World Championships in almost every sport including: golf, tennis, sprinting, speed on water (Gar Wood), bowling, etc... Even the 1935 World Checkers Champion was from Detroit!! Or, that April 18th was declared Champions Day by the Governor of Michigan?

Now, for the 75th anniversary (2010-2011) the forgotten story of the greatest season in American History is told through the voices of those who lived it. Using original newspaper articles and 315 rarely seen photos; Charles Avison asks this question: Isn't it time that we remember?
