The background is Kentucky in the first Quarter of the last Century when the Frontier existed Side Fay Side with the beginnings of a More elegant society. It was a colourful period and it has been vividly brought to life in thess pages but the setting / with All its vigor and contrast is always dominated by the strange and violent human drama that Takee place in it.

But the other debate is not nearly so simple for it is based partly on a hate that extends far beyond the limits of sport and that has thrived in darkness through the years. It has had great Days Quot before As during the reign of Jack Johnson and unless a Miracle comes to bring Light to some Peoples minds it will have great Days again.
