KIRKUS REVIEW

An appetizing anthology for the sports-minded and believers of ""those were the good old days"", this is a series of articles by such as Grantland Rice, Bryan Field, J. Roy Stockton, James P. Dawson, Stanley Woodward, etc. on the athletic achievements of the 1920's in different fields. The fabulous Ruth and the Yankees, the dynamic Dempsey, the incomparable Man of War, the inspiring Rockne of Notre Dame, the Tildens and the Jones, and the other comparable heroes are held up as the men and groups which made the United States the leading country in sports in this decade. Covering baseball, boxing, football, horseracing, track, polo, etc., each writer attempts to prove that this was the age of accomplishment- unmatched today.
