About this title


This is the first book that includes all of Guy W. Green's baseball writings: A Complete History of the Nebraska Indians Base Ball Team (1903), Fun and Frolic with an Indian Ball Team (1904), and "Experiences with an Indian Ball Team" (1908). The works detail the athletic success and humorous escapades of the most famous American Indian barnstorming baseball team. A substantial introduction provides historical background on the formation of the team; on Green's life, writings, and other ventures; and on the later history and owners of the Nebraska Indians after Green sold the team.

Remembered today as the barnstorming owner of the Nebraska Indians, he also founded Green's Japanese Baseball Team in 1906 and Green's Native Hawaiian Baseball Team in 1913. He died in Kansas City in 1946. Jeffrey P. Beck is associate dean of graduate studies and professor of English at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tennessee.
