Lou Gehrig: The Luckiest Man

Lou Gehrig: The Luckiest Man

By:  David A. Adler

This biography traces Gehrig’s life, from childhood through his illustrious career with the Yankees to his struggle with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and his tragic death at age thirty-seven. Expressive illustrations capture the strength, modesty, and dignity for which this remarkable man will always be remembered. “Readers will feel good after reading this biography--and maybe even inspired to start measuring themselves against Gehrig’s standard.”--Kirkus Reviews
