Publisher's Summary

Henry Grantland Rice (November 1, 1880 - July 13, 1954) was an early 20th-century American sportswriter known for his elegant prose. His writing was published in newspapers around the country and broadcast on the radio by Jimmy Powers in the popular radio show: The Grantland Rice Story.

Powers brought Grantland's autobiography The Tumult and the Shouting to the radio masses in a weekly 15-minute radio show that literally started on page one of Rice's autobiography, and moved through the entire book over 52 episodes. Each week contained Rice's rich stories and reflections of Babe Ruth, Jack Dempsey, Knute Rockne, and other sports greats.

The series has been called one of the most compelling looks into the career of one of America's most beloved sports writers, and is a must-have for all sports aficionados. Digitally remastered exclusively for Audible.

    "Wonderful content. Needs an update."

    Wonderful old style read - but they should cut out the song at the beginning and end of every chapter. You end up with 45 minutes of trumpets to skip over.
    But Grants' words are epic and the best of the times.
