This book was an excellent summer reading book for my son. He loves sports and the book taught him some valuable lessons about history. I would recommend this book.
I am a grandmother and bought this book for my Grandson's summer reading project. Upon arrival I read the book and thoroughly enjoyed it. After my grandson read it he recapped it and he also enjoyed the book. I would recommend this book for youngsters as it gives them a look into what happened in this country in the past.
