Description

In the spring of 1947, Jackie Robinson played his first game with the Brooklyn Dodgers, breaking down baseball’s decades-old color barrier and changing the face of the game forever. In this intimate portrait, Robinson’s widow, Rachel, tells her husband’s story-and that of her life with him-from her unique perspective, comple­mented by 301 black-and-white photographs from her own collection. Now back in print with a new jacket, this classic book is a moving tribute to a remarkable man seen through the eyes of an equally remarkable woman.
