About the Edition

In "The Last Hero", Bryant chronicles Aaron"s childhood in segregated Alabama, his brief stardom in the Negro Leagues, his complicated relationship with celebrity, and his historic rivalry with Willie Mays--all culminating in the defining event of his life: his shattering of Babe Ruth"s all-time home-run record. Bryant also examines Aaron"s more complex second act: his quest to become an important voice beyond the ball field.
