Focusing on Jim Thorpe's years at Carlisle, this book brings his early athletic career, and especially his college football days, to life, while also dispelling some myths about him and movingly depicting the Native American experience at the turn of the 20th century. This is a book for history buffs as well as sports fans: an illuminating and lively listen about a truly great American.
