As a kid, Jackie Robinson loved sports. And why not? He was a natural at football, basketball, and, of course, baseball. But beyond athletic skill, it was his strength of character that secured his place in sports history. In 1947 Jackie joined the Brooklyn Dodgers, breaking the longtime color barrier in Major League Baseball. It was tough being first - not only did "fans" send hate mail, but some of his own teammates refused to accept him. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dominic Hoffman.

My Living Will is the story of former major league pitcher John Trautwein, and the unbelievable tragedy which befell him and his family when his 15-year-old son, Will, took his own life. There had been no warnings, no obvious signs of anxiety, depression, or unhappiness - nothing. A family and a community were left stunned as they pondered how a young man like Will Trautwein, a healthy, happy, popular, athletic, and musical teenager, who came from such a loving home, could lose the will to live. 1.

Jim Thorpe was one of the greatest athletes who ever lived. He played professional football, major league baseball, and won Olympic gold medals in track and field. But his life wasn't an easy one. Born on the Sac and Fox Reservation in 1887, he encountered much family tragedy, and was sent as a young boy to various Indian boarding schools: strict, cold institutions that didn't allow their students to hold on to their Native American languages and traditions. Jim ran away from school many times, until he found his calling at Pennsylvania's Carlisle Indian School. There, the now-legendary coach Pop Warner recognized Jim's athletic excellence and welcomed him onto the football and track teams. Focusing on Jim Thorpe's years at Carlisle, this book brings his early athletic career, and especially his college football days, to life, while also dispelling some myths about him and movingly depicting the Native American experience at the turn of the 20th century. This is a book for history buffs as well as sports fans: an illuminating and lively listen about a truly great American. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joseph Bruchac.
