An Intimate PortraitOversize Book - 1996
Jackie Robinson first played for the Brooklyn Dodgers in the spring of 1947, breaking down baseball's decades-old colour line and changing the face of the game for ever. In this biography his widow tells Robinson's story, and that of her life with him. The book encompasses not just baseball, but family, friends and - after his retirement - the business world and the civil-rights movement.
