21: The Story of Roberto Clemente is a human drama of courage, faith, and dignity, inspired by the life of the acclaimed Pittsburgh Pirates baseball star who died too young. 21 chronicles Clemente's life from his early days growing up, through the highlights of his career, capturing the grit of his rise from an impoverished Puerto Rican childhood to the majesty of his performance on the field, and to his fundamental decency off of it. Santiago's inviting style combines realistic attention to detail and expressive cartooning to great effect.

Remarkable. There are a couple of baseball images in this book that are amazing. Great story too.

Amazing and dynamic graphic illustrations depict the life of one of America's best baseball players who excelled as a athlete, as a gentleman and a humanitarian despite a time in our history where discrimination was obvious and blatant.
