A biography of baseball legend Jackie Robinson, the first African American to play in the major leagues, as told by his daughter. Sharon Robinson shares memories of her famous father in this loving biography of the man who made history by breaking the color barrier in baseball -- and taught his children that the only measure of life is the impact you have on others' lives. Promises To Keep is the story of Jackie Robinson's hard-won victories in baseball, business, politics, and civil rights. It looks at the inspiring effect the legendary Brooklyn Dodger had on his family, his community ... his country. Told from the unique perspective of Robinson's only daughter, this intimate and uplifting book includes photos from the Robinson family archives and family letters never before published. Jackie Robinson is one of our great national heroes. Promises To Keep reminds us what made him a champion -- on and off the field!
