Review roundup

Drama and Pride in the Gateway CityDrama and Pride in the
Gateway City
by John Harry Stahl and Bill Nowlin in Redbird Rants

“Without the Philadelphia Phillies‘ epic collapse and the Cardinals
epic comeback to win nearly a dozen games, there would have likely been a
3-team playoff between the Cardinals, Phillies, and Cincinnati Reds. Had that
happened, we might or might not be celebrating the 1964 World Series 50th
anniversary in 2014. More importantly, this book would not be sitting on your
bookshelf–which it should anyway.”

-Daniel Solzman

Ralph Salisbury in the Minneapolis Star

“Like a grandfatherly storyteller, Salisbury takes readers
on tangents that are, initially, jarring. It doesn’t take long, though, to fall
into the pleasant role of rapt listener.”

-Elizabeth Wilkinson

by Chris Lamb in C70 at the Bat

“Chris Lamb does an excellent job of laying out all the
players, showing them for their faults and credits, and pointing out how their
work laid–or fought–the groundwork for Robinson’s debut.”

X-15 Rocket Plane

space before pilots became astronauts, and America began a new era of
exploration beyond the Earth to the Moon.”
