Squawkin’ Sports Hosted by Patrick Sauer and David J. Roth
Featuring Bradford Pearson, author of The Eagles of Heart Mountain: A True Story of Football, Incarceration, and Resistance in World War II America
Created and hosted by writers Patrick Sauer and David J. Roth, Squawkin’ Sports is an ongoing series featuring book chats with grown-up authors writing about grown-ups playing kiddie games. For this month's installment, Sauer and Roth chat with Bradford Pearson about his impeccably researched, deeply moving, never-before-told tale about extraordinary World War II era football team – the high school team from an incarceration camp for Japanese Americans at the base of Heart Mountain in Wyoming. The Eagles of Heart Mountain honors the resilience of extraordinary heroes and the power of sports in a sweeping and inspirational portrait of one of the darkest moments in American history.
