Colorblind: The Forgotten Team that Broke Baseball’s Color Line (Grove/Atlantic) by Tom Dunkel 

Journalist Dunkel has not only researched and presented a virtually forgotten but very significant piece of sports history, he has also done it in a very entertaining, narrative nonfiction style. It will become required reading among those who feel we can better understand today’s racial tensions by looking to the past.–Booklist (starred review)

“A decade before Jackie Robinson broke the Major League Baseball color line in 1947, an integrated team captured the imagination of Bismarck, North Dakota . . .. a story that transcends championships, and an inspirational reflection on an otherwise dismal human rights history.” –Publishers Weekly
