While the author is a world-famous basketball player, this memoir is not really a basketball book. Yes, it's about one season for the Alchesay High School Falcons on the White Mountain Apache Indian reservation in Arizona. But the story really is about discovery, as Abdul-Jabbar comes to know the people of the tribe and is accepted by them. It's their story, not his. Carl Lumbly, a stage and screen actor, gives a clear reading. The author presents an introduction, so the difference between his voice and Lumbly's is striking. But after a short while, the listener won't mind. R.C.G. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
