KIRKUS REVIEW

The great American game as personified by one of the great ball clubs -- ably recounted by the author of Lou Gehrig (Putnam, reported P. 118, 3/1/42 bulletin) and a book that should have a wide appeal among baseball fans the country over. Here are the origins of the Yankees, the men who made the team famous, and the players who contributed to its prestige. 21 years with 13 pennants, 9 World Series, and many a record broken, makes quite a story of greatness in sport, nationwide fame, and big business. With the coming of the baseball season, this should be a natural.
