This book does a good job of balancing the topics of Native American history in the US history of football and ethics in general For the most part this book reads as a story and not as nonfiction homework is at a good reading level for students in 6th 12th grade and will tell teens of uglier moments of US history they don t learn enough about in school Reluctant readers may be drawn to either the football or the Native American aspect and be surprised seeing familiar hopefully names like Eisenhower with Thorpe on the football field

Summary æ Undefeated Jim Thorpe and the Carlisle Indian School Football Team ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Review ã E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ Steve Sheinkin “Sheinkin has made a career of finding extraordinary stories in American history” The New York Times Book Review Undefeated Jim Thorpe and the Carlisle Indian School Football Team is an astonishing underdog sports story and It’s an unflinching look at the US government’s violent persecution of Native Americans and the school that was designed to erase Indian cultures Expertly told by three time National Book Award finalist Steve Sheinkin it’s the story of a group of young men who came together at that school the overwhelming obstacles they faced both on and off the field and their. Update 2018Went to Jim Thorpe PA Awesome little place Lots of history before taking Jim Thorpe s name If you go warning mountainous with narrow streets and not a lot of parking Be prepared JTX has a great tour and the Stone Pub might be getting that name wrong is a great restaurant that caters to those with food allergies though anyone can find delicious food there And the Speakeasy was SO COOL Great atmosphere and the staff were all incredibly friendly Saw the Jim Thorpe memorial and it was very respectful and well done I definitely recommend this book and visiting the town if you canOriginal review after this pointRead this in one sitting while waiting for my car to get out of the shop Others in the waiting room must have thought I was NUTS This book made me REACTFirst at the initial brutality of the game of football It was a college sport and men DIED like 19 a year or It was almost stopped but Teddy Roosevelt loved it so much he encouraged those in charge to come up with safer rules and padding and stuff There was no just defense or just offense player They did it ALL Second the HORRIBLE prejudice against the Native Americans turned my stomach and made me SO ANGRY I had to put the book down and just remember to BREATHE Third Jim Thorpe was AMAZING Seriously super human And he has his Olympic medals RIPPED away because he wasn t an amateur sportsman he has played two seasons of paid baseball He won track and field What does that have to do with baseball Nothing he was Native American and prejudice ran high Those who attacked him did so well outside the time frame for medal removal and even those who were silver to his gold didn t want the medals they said HE won not them His American naysayers didn t care and one day when he wasn t in his rooms someone snuck in and TOOK HIS MEDALS AND TROPHY AWAYThat was another remember to breathe moment Oh yeah and as a Native American He was a ward of the state NOT considered an American citizen the irony AND couldn t control his own moneyBreathe Jen breatheReally great book didn t UITE reach five stars a 45 rounded down to 4 but HIGHLY recommend Just get the paperback It ll break less when you throw it in anger at the unfairness of what Thorpe and other Native Americans went through I wish it included the struggle the female Native Americans went through as well as the men Maybe enough to see what his wife had to deal with All in all highly recommended
