Jenkins, bestselling co-author of "It''s Not About the Bike," revives a forgotten piece of history in this inspirational story about a Native American football team. "The Real All Americans" is about the end of a culture and the birth of a game that has thrilled Americans for generations.
From the Publisher:
Offers an inspirational portrait of the Native American football team of the Carlisle Indian Industrial School, a championship squad that included the legendary Jim Thorpe and that defeated its Ivy League opponents, in a history that is set against a backdrop of the early days of football and the rise and fall of Coach Glenn "Pop" Warner. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.

Praise

"Jenkins's painstaking research into the social context of the times makes THE REAL ALL AMERICANS required reading for anyone interested in the complex ways that football--arguably our real national pastime now--still so accurately reflects our national identity." - Andrew Ervin 06/17/2007
