Three-time winner of the National League's Most Valuable Player award, Roy Campanella was catcher for the Brooklyn (soon to be Los Angeles) Dodgers in January 1958, when a car accident left him permanently paralyzed. It's Good to Be Alive describes his determination to rally from helplessness and help other quadriplegics. It looks back to a famous career and to a childhood on the sandlots of Philadelphia. Introducing this Bison Book edition is Jules Tygiel, a professor of history at San Francisco State University and the author of Baseball's Great Experiment: Jackie Robinson and His Legacy.
