The Sword and Dragon by M.R. Mathias

Book Review: Battle Lines Undrawn by Rick Brooks

By Wrp68, published on Oct 26, 2010

...With the election of President Obama, it is easy to forget that only few short decades ago a level of bigotry existed that would stop an African-American person from enjoying a movie with his white friends. This is a coming-of-age story of a naïve teenager and of an entire nation. This book is geared to young adult readers (10-18) and I believe it would be an asset to middle school history/social studies programs. Highly Recommended.By William Potter
