"Salt in His Shoes"
Salt in His Shoes: Michael Jordan in Pursuit of a Dream by Deloris Jordan
The mere mention of the name conjures up visions of basketball played at
its absolute best. But as a child, Michael almost gave up on his hoop dreams,
all because he feared he'd never grow tall enough to play the game that would
one day make him famous. That's when his mother and father stepped in and
shared the invaluable lesson of what really goes into the making of a champion
-- patience, determination, and hard work.
Deloris Jordan, mother of the basketball phenomenon, teams up with his sister Roslyn to tell this heartwarming and inspirational story that only the members of the Jordan family could tell. It's a tale about faith and hope and how any family working together can help a child make his or her dreams come true.
