More About The Last Hero by Howard Bryant
 
 
 
Overview

In the thirty-four years since his retirement, Henry (Hank) Aaron s reputation has only grown in magnitude. But his influence extends beyond statistics, and at long last here is the first definitive biography of one of baseball s immortal figures.
Based on meticulous research and extensive interviews The Last Hero reveals how Aaron navigated the upheavals of his time fighting against racism while at the same time benefiting from racial progress and how he achieved his goal of continuing Jackie Robinson s mission to obtain full equality for African Americans, both in baseball and society, while he lived uncomfortably in the public eye. Eloquently written, detailed and penetrating, this is a revelatory portrait of a complicated, private man who through sports became an enduring American icon.
