Show-Me Kings: Bootheel Ball, the Cookson Clan, and A Run- and- Gun All-Star Show by Mike Mitchell

The Missouri Bootheel, a six-county region tucked away in the southeastern corner of the "Show-Me State," boasts a unique and intriguing history involving railroad strikes, mob lynchings, and earthquake scares, but what Mike Mitchell, who called the Bootheel home for eighteen years, remembers most is the basketball. Show-Me Kings is Mitchell's tribute to the local legends who made life in rural Missouri and the game of basketball a thrilling and memorable experience.
