Synopsis: AMERICA'S GREATEST SPORTS town, Boston boasts many of the nation's most honored traditions in professional and amateur athletics as well as many of the most memorable and significant games in sports history. Now the city's rich sports heritage over the past century is captured in this engaging pictorial and narrative chronicle. Organized chronologically, the volume comprises illuminating essays by the author and journalist/historian Glenn Stout, historical vignettes, and over 150 vintage photographs with expanded descriptive captions to highlight the teams, events, and personalities that made Boston an internationally recognized center for sports. Professional, school, collegiate, club, and amateur athletics are represented in this lavish work, which includes articles on the Boston Braves 1914 miracle championship season, Celtic's great Bill Russell, professional football's 1936 mystery season, Olympian Louise Stokes, and the Boston Marathon. Fans and historians will delight in this fascinating look back at the remarkable individuals and moments that define the very heart and soul of sports in Boston.
