The tremendous figures presented in this exciting, high-interest new series are some of the wrestling world's greatest heroes. Young teens drawn to the sport because of the colorful nature of its participants and because of the traits these men possess -- courage, tenacity, a sense of adventure, strength, endurance, and commitment -- will find hours of action-packed reading here. Each handsome volume, chock-full of fascinating photos and lively text, will provide an excellent read for any young wrestling fan.

This is a dramatic account of one of professional wrestling's most flamboyant figures. Davies' biography describes Monsoon's childhood in upstate New York, his beginnings as a wrestler, and his professional transformation from good guy to bad and back again.
