Louisiana Athletes: The Top Twenty (Google eBook)
Who were the top twenty athletes from Louisiana before 1981? Names like Terry Bradshaw and Pete Maravich are some who come to mind. Find out their stories, as well as the stories of eighteen other Louisiana athletes. How did these sportsmen start out, and what adversities did they face? Louisiana Athletes is fast paced and full of inspirational anecdotes. Discover how champion fighter Pete Herman got his start as a French Quarter bootblack, and how Willis Reed, in order to give his team a will to win, overcame extreme pain from a strained thigh muscle and played basketball when he could have been in a wheelchair. Not only can you read about these athletes, but you can also see what they looked like. Each section is accompanied by a photograph of the featured star. Marty Mule has compiled a fascinating volume that shows us the humanity and the heroism of these Louisiana legends.
