As New. No Dust Jacket as Issued. Book. 9 1/4 h x 6 1/4w. A real nice 1st edition 3rd printing (stated) paperback. Has 467 pages with a few black & white photos scattered throughout. This fast-paced, richly detailed biography, based on more than eighty interviews, digs deep beneath the surface to reveal a more complicated and profound story of sports pioneering than we've come to expect from the genre. Perry Wallace's unusually insightful and honest introspection reveals his inner thoughts throughout his journey. The world seemed to be opening up at just the right time, and when Vanderbilt recruited himPerry, Wallace courageously accepted the assignment to desegregate the SEC. His experiences on campus and in the hostile gymnasiums of the Deep South turned out to be nothing like he ever imagined.
Very good. Text pages clean & tight with no markings. Appears unread. Cover has slight edge wear. A nuanced, but raw story of basketball & racism in the South during the 1960s. A story of physical & intellectual courage. Extremely readable copy.
