KIRKUS REVIEW

Gene Schoor's latest sports hero gets the red carpet treatment in a high powered biography that gives Dempsey, in enthusiastic narrative form, his legendary due. And, a rags to riches story, Dempsey's is one that lends itself to dramatization. Beginning as a rover who had left his poverty stricken Mormon western ranch life for the road at an early age, Dempsey started by winning small bouts at fairs and exhibits. The way towards acquiring the knockouts that brought success was tough as any fighter's and its glories have their appeal for aficionados.
