“In Bush League Boys sportswriter Toby Smith relies upon fascinating oral histories to recall the home runs, screen money, and dust storms that characterized the glory days of post–World War II baseball in the Southwest.”—Ron Briley, author of The Baseball Film in Postwar America: A Critical Study, 1948–1962
From its founding in 1929, Railway Express Agency dominated the transportation industry until the 1960s. This history of REA coincides with the career of Klink Garrett, who began as a temporary employee in Rapid City, South Dakota, in 1934 and retired in 1973 as a senior executive and member of REA's board of directors.
