Covers the Braddock, Pa. Tigers of 1959 as they attempt to set the record for the nation's longest winning streak in high school football. Set against the backdrop of the cultural milieu of the 1950s and the 1959 steel strike that economically paralyzed Braddock, it is a fast-paced enjoyable read. Excellent game action descriptions and biographical portraits of the main characters. ( )
