In the spring of 1947, Jackie Robinson played his first game with the Brooklyn Dodgers, breaking down baseball's decades-old colour line and changing the face of the game forever. Now, in this intimate portrait, Robinson's widow, Rachel, tells her husband's story--and that of her life with him--from her unique perspective matched with 301 black-and-white photographs. Along with a new cover, the book will be re-released at a perfect time given the public's renewed interest in Robinson after the release of 42, a biographical movie about the player. All will be moved by the story of a remarkable man seen through the eyes of an equally remarkable woman.
