When the dragons attack, Elian Wilding braves the assault and runs into her city to save as many people as she can. Three days later, she wakes up, alive despite her dire encounter with a deadly black dragon. Her left arm is mangled beyond repair, and three black scales have grown into the skin of her arm. As the scales spread across her body, Elian is suddenly stronger and faster, capable of ripping any mortal man apart. She must learn to control her newfound strength, or she will become the monster people fear.

Sid Gordon, An American Baseball Story by Steven D. Cahn

(History / Baseball)

Receive 25% off between November 28th and December 26th with promo code: baseballholidaysale

Sid Gordon, An American Baseball Story, is the compelling history of the son of Jewish immigrants, and his efforts to make it to the highest levels of professional baseball. Gordon’s story is not unlike the stories of so many American families; Jewish, Irish, Italian, and so many others, caught up in the most turbulent period in American history. He grew up on the streets of Brooklyn during the Great Depression and had to fight off and withstand Anti-Semitism as he struggled to earn himself a place in professional baseball. This was truly the greatest era of the game, and Gordon not only made it to the majors, but he was also a two-time All-Star, and one of the best players in the league.

There are many books written about the star players of the game. This book, however, is more than just a story about baseball, and Gordon’s story is not limited to the years he played ball. What is unique about “Sid Gordon, An American Baseball Story,” are Gordon’s contributions off the field. Gordon played a critical, but yet untold role, in the integration of the game and the fight to end discrimination in our society. While Gordon played the game nearly seventy-five years ago, the lessons of his life remain relevant today, not only in sports, but in American society.
