From the Back Cover

He dreamed of making the big leagues. Andre Dawson grew up without a father in a poor family. But his grandmother taught him something that would change his life; she taught him about God. With the love and support of his family, Andre began to pursue his dream. From junior league high-school baseball to the minor leagues, Andre never doubted God's plan for his life. And finally, in 1977, his dream came true; he signed on with the Montreal Expos. By 1987, Andrew was a sports celebrity and winner of several Golden Glove awards. Loved by teammates and fans alike, he played successfully for the Expos, the Chicago Cubs, and finally the Boston Red Sox. Through all his difficulties -- injuries, conflict, and loss -- Andre refused to become bitter, trusting in God to lead him, just as his grandmother had taught him. Andre Dawson is the inspiring story of how God took a small boy from nowhere and made him into one of the best-loved athletes of our time.
