MY HERO recommends this book to adult readers.
In this portrait of an American sports legend, Russell Sullivan confirms Rocky Marciano''s place as a symbol and cultural icon of his era. As much as he embodied the wholesome, rags-to-riches patriotism of a true American hero, Marciano also reflected the racial and ethnic tensions festering beneath the country''s benevolent facade.
