    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 21.95

    Why do accomplished writers (and grown-ups) like Ron Carlson, Rick Bass, and Michael Chabon (to name but a few of those represented here) still obsess over their baseball days?

    In 1901, Philadelphia's celebrity female journalist stepped off a train in Blackfoot, Montana, and into a world of living legends.

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 59.95
