Jim Thorpe Original All-American

Jim Thorpe, Original All-AmericanJim Thorpe, Original All-American by Joseph Bruchac

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a great book! If you're in to football, Native Americans, history, or just a terrific read about a remarkable real person, this is the book for you. I learned a lot about the early beginnings of football, and all about Pop Warner. I learned about the incredible life of a remarkable all-American, who was not even considered an American citizen, and whose people were not allowed to vote!

The author, Joseph Bruchac is a Native American himself, and he thoroughly researched the life of this young man who even had his Olympic medals taken away. I'm so glad I decided to read this.
