That fits in with the years I can stomach reading about. They had some fine players back then. I saw the book at a bookstore in town here a few months back, but I didn't check it out. I know some guys here had been talking about it, but I didn't follow much of that thread either. Now that I have the summer free, I might find time to give it a look, but I am backed up with 4 Dizzy Dean bios I picked up during the last semester, and the summer is my time for long motorcycle tours up north. The Dean books may be the only ones I can fit in the saddlebags, but I will certainly put this book on my read list for late summer/next winter.
