In the spring of 1947, Jackie Robinson played his first game with the Brooklyn Dodgers, breaking down baseball's decades-old color barrier and changing the face of the game forever. In this intimate portrait, Robinson's widow, Rachel, tells her husband's story—and that of her life with him—from her unique perspective, complemented by 301 black-and-white photographs from her own collection. Now back in print with a new jacket, this classic book is a moving tribute to a remarkable man seen through the eyes of an equally remarkable woman.
