    Sinopse

    'Pistol' is more than the biography of a ballplayer. It's the story of a boy transformed by his father's dream - and the cost of that dream. Even as Pete Maravich became Pistol Pete - a basketball icon for baby boomers - all the Maraviches paid a price. In this book, Mark Kriegel has captured the saga of an American family - its rise, its apparent ruin, and, finally, its redemption. The narrative begins in 1929, the year a missionary gave Pete's father a basketball. Press Maravich had been a neglected child trapped in a hellish industrial town, but the game enabled him to blossom. It also caused him to confuse basketball with salvation. The intensity of Press's obsession initiates a journey across three generations of Maraviches. Pistol Pete, a ballplayer unlike any other, was a product of his father's vanity and vision. But that dream continues to exact a price on Pete's own sons. Now in their twenties - and fatherless for most of their lives - they have waged their own struggles with the game and its ghosts. By telling one family's history, Kriegel has traced the history of the game and a large slice of the American narrative.
