A Quick and Interesting Read

by timthehistorynut (WorldCat user published 2007-07-23) Very Good Permalink
Deford's book covers the stories of John McGraw, pitcher Christy Mathewson, and how both men led the New York Giants to greatness during the early Twentieth Century. It's a quick yet very interesting read.
