This lavishly illustrated volume is a memorial to Mickey Mantle, baseball legend and true American hero. Over two hundred photographs, some seen here for the first time, tell the inspiring story of one of the greatest stars ever to play the game.
In a dozen personal interviews with the author, with accompanying photos, Mantle's own story is told - the way it really happened. The long hours, day after day of learning the bedrock fundamentals from his immensely dedicated father, the dizzying rise from his early years in Joplin, Missouri to the myth-making performances in Yankee Stadium, the triumphs over the crippling physical handicaps that shadowed his personal and playing life, and finally his election to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
