For baseball enthusiasts everywhere, the names of the greatest Boston Red Sox are synonymous with the game itself: Ted Williams, Babe Ruth, Jimmie Foxx, Lefty Grove, Dom DiMaggio, Carl Yastrzemski, Johnny Damon, and so many more. And no other franchise can claim as many moments that have become indelible parts of baseball’s history: Williams’ last at-bat, Carlton Fisk’s Game 6 home run, Bill Buckner’s fatal error.
Red Sox Nation is the finest, most comprehensive history of this storied franchise, told from the point of view of the people who lived it. From every disappointment to each triumph, culminating with the 2004 World Championship, Red Sox Nation takes you into the dugout and onto the field to relive each moment.

Love to learn, cook, bake, garden and always love a great book.
Heartbreak and Hope.
I enjoyed the whole book but especially the history, told through the words of the players etc. As a lifelong fan I cried hearing how close they always got and how bad the losses were, but I also cried hearing about the wins, the hope, and the never-ending passion for this beloved team.
I thought his performance was so great! It felt like hearing stories from your father or grandfather about this team. It made you feel like you were at Fenway with your old man as he shared his memories of the team with you.
"Great story, full of detail"
Loved it. A complete and potted history with a good update for the 2004 season.
