New York Times Book Review
"...[S]ubtle and sensitive...The best pages of 'The Last Hero' describe Mantle's bleak beginnings in Commerce, Okla., during the Great Depression. The town was dominated by lead and zinc mines that were 'hellholes full of danger, illness, and death,' in which the minders 'breathed death every day' for wages of $30 a week. ...Mr. Falkner skillfully retells the oft-repeated yarns of how Mantle's father, Elvin, forever called Mutt and determined to give his eldest son an escape from fate, began when the child was in second grade to make him a baseball player: daily two-hours sessions of hitting, fielding, running. - Michael Anderson 04/07/1996
