History buffs and sports fans will love the true story of the Carlisle Indian Industrial School, a pioneering nineteenth- and twentieth-century educational effort in Pennsylvania, and its football team, which played a major part in shaping today's collegiate game. Don Leslie's balanced tone allows listeners to vividly imagine being on the line of scrimmage as collegiate football kicks off in times that were tough, on and off the field, for Native Americans. He consistently sounds as if he is genuinely interested in the innovations and stories about the game's vanguards. That, in turn, helps enlighten anyone whose knowledge of the subject is limited to a few basic facts about Jim Thorpe, a Carlisle team member who became one of the greatest American athletes of all time.
