Jim Campbell - football historian
Jim Thorpe has been so much more than just an amazing athlete; his folk hero status begged for someone to tell his story in more than just stats and old pictures. And Kate Buford does not disappoint. Well worth the read for her high level of research into the details of the politics and culture of the times that had such an affect on his life. Highly recommended and read her Burt Lancaster bio too, another interesting take on an interesting life.
