The Best Team Ever: A Novel of America, Chicago, and the 1907 Cubs
This baseball book, crime drama, and love story follows the 1907 Chicago Cubs from the Practice Season to the World's Championship Series. The team of Tinker to Evans to Chance. And Three Finger Brown, owner of the game's best curve ball. Rookie Kid Durbin rides the bench and writes a journal as the Cubs play a near-perfect brand of baseball against the backdrop of a wild, corrupt Chicago and a transforming America. Madmen, saints and sinners on the diamond and off parade through the pages of this historical novel.
