About this title: Mark Ribowsky, the widely acclaimed biographer of "Satchel Paige," pulls no punches in his portrait of this magnificent, troubled athlete. Ribowsky shows Gibson's dark side, but he also enhances Gibson's historical status even as he separates fact from fiction by examining the truth behind his legendary performances. "Josh Gibson" is the most complete, thorough, and authoritative account of the life of black ball's greatest hitter, and one of its most important stars.
