About the Author

Barry Denenberg is the author of many critically acclaimed biographies and nonfiction works. He has written on a wide range of people including Nelson Mandela, Charles Lindbergh, Jackie Robinson and Elvis Presley. His innovative books on Abraham Lincoln (Lincoln Shot), Muhammad Ali (Ali: An American Champion), and the sinking of the Titanic (Titanic Sinks!), combine narrative with illustration and photography in a unique format which reviewers have called "history at its best" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). Denenberg is also known for his many memorable books in the Dear America series--most notably When Will This Cruel War Be Over?: The Civil War Diary of Emma Simpson, a title that won the Jefferson Cup. Denenberg divides his time between New York City and Westchester County.

"A captivating biography of the iconic sports figure."--Publishers Weekly
