Description
This biography traces Gehrig's life, from childhood through his illustrious career with the Yankees to his struggle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and his tragic death at age thirty-seven. Expressive illustrations capture the strength, modesty, and dignity for which this remarkable man will always be remembered. "Readers will feel good after reading this biography--and maybe even inspired to start measuring themselves against Gehrig's standard."-- Kirkus Reviews
