Ten Bears is a really good book telling a great story. Due to the time difference between its writing and the actual events, there are some artistic licenses taken by the author, but I would argue that it adds to the books character. Mr. Silverman and Mr. Harrison have wound the events of the early seventies in Maryland with the creation of college lacrosse team. I appreciated the reality of the individual character's stories and the resisting by the author's to glamorize their antics. Yes, the team skipped practices and was not always honorable about going to school however, against the backdrop of the social times, their accomplishments are unbelievable. If you are a lacrosse fan, this is a must read. If you enjoy stories about real people, this is a good book telling a great story.

Fascinating piece of social and sports history. The authors combine humor and heart to create a great story about the only black college lacrosse team to ever compete in NCAA. This would make a GREAT movie!

Another brilliantly woven masterpiece that tells a story of persistence, teamwork, and spirit. Mr. Silverman and Mr. Harrison take us on a journey through a truly inspiring tale about the only black college lacrosse team to compete in the NCAA. Based on a true story, this piece of sports history is a MUST read.
