5.0 out of 5 stars A little book with a big heart! March 10 2005
By A Customer
This book is only 73 pages long. It is a little book with a big heart! It skillfully and compassionately tells the story of Louis Sockalexis the first Major Native American baseball star for Cleveland in the 1890's. Louis astounded with his skill the future Hall of Fame Baseball Players who played with and against him. This book astounds the reader in its ability to create the long ago world of Louis Sockalexis the Baseball Pioneer and extradinary multi-talented athlete.
