About this title:
"Brashler has put together a balanced account that, while deflating some of the apocryphal tales of Gibson's exploits, brings him into clear focus as one of the outstanding baseball players of his era....He emerges here as a stoic figure...totally dedicated to baseball."? New York Times Book Review.
"Brashler helps to cut through the legend of a moonfaced laughing giant and give us a sense of Josh's life, in and out of baseball."? New York Review of Books.
Product Description: Perhaps baseball's greatest hitter, Gibson was known as "the black Babe Ruth". In this illuminating biography, William Brashler introduces an authentic American sports hero and recaptures the mood and style, the excitement and poignance of a world of black baseball that has vanished from the American scene. "A balanced account that. . .brings him into clear focus as one of the outstanding baseball players of his era". -New York Times Book Review.
