106 Yards

By Carmichael, Al

CA, U.S.A.: C & C PUBLISHING GROUP, 2006. Slight scratch on front board otherwise New. Friends and fans have repeatedly asked Al 'Hoagy' Carmichael to put his life and experiences in professional football, Hollywood, and the Marines in writing. Like a lot of people during the 1930s his family struggled. That struggle only became greater when his father, the main breadwinner of the family, died when Carmichael was a teenager. From those humble beginnings, Carmichael went on to attend a prestigious private university, build successful careers in professional football and motion pictures, and provide for his family in a way his parents couldn't have dreamed. This autobiography is a nostalgic and humorous journey through Carmichael's life and two careers. This story will take readers behind the scenes during the glory years of professional football and the movie and television industry. 399pp.. First Edition. Cloth. Like New/Like New. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Heavy Item Postage Quote.

When Mexicans Could Play Ball: Basketball, Race, and Identity in San Antonio, 1928-1945

By Garcia, Ignacio M.

Austin: University of Texas Press, 2013. In 1939, a team of short, scrappy kids from a vocational school established specifically for Mexican Americans became the high school basketball champions of San Antonio, Texas. Their win, and the ensuing riot it caused, took place against a backdrop of shifting and conflicted attitudes toward Mexican Americans and American nationalism in the WWII era. "Only when the Mexicans went from perennial runners-up to champs," Garcia writes, "did the emotions boil over." The first sports book to look at Mexican American basketball specifically, When Mexicans Could Play Ball is also a revealing study of racism and cultural identity formation in Texas. Using personal interviews, newspaper articles, and game statistics to create a compelling narrative, as well as drawing on his experience as a sports writer, Garcia takes us into the world of San Antonio's Sidney Lanier High School basketball team, the Voks, which became a two-time state championship team under head coach William Carson "Nemo" Herrera. An alumnus of the school himself, Garcia investigates the school administrators' project to Americanize the students, Herrera's skillful coaching, and the team's rise to victory despite discrimination and violence from other teams and the world outside of the school. Ultimately, Garcia argues, through their participation and success in basketball at Lanier, the Voks players not only learned how to be American but also taught their white counterparts to question long-held assumptions about Mexican Americans.SLIGHT DAMAGE TO INSIDE OF REAR D/J..
