[minimal handling wear to book; jacket front panel a bit scuffed, one tiny closed tear and very slight dog-earing at top of spine]. "A powerful story of moral awakening told through the voice of Cully Madden, a young airman and aspiring priest who joins the all-black Air Force boxing team in the summer of 1947. During the team's tour of the South, Cully's friendships with his teammates deepen as they face their opponents in dilapidated vaudeville halls, on the rusting hulks of barges moored at backwater Mississippi River towns, and in remote Louisiana canebrakes." The author is best-known as a writer for film and television, most notably an Academy Award-winner for his screenplay for WITNESS (1985).
