Written by Toby Smith, this 168-paged paperback book purports to chronicle former World Champion Jack Dempsey's early vagabond days, when he supposedly fought in small Utah and Colorado towns as "Kid Blackie." (Modern historians, however, still have been unable to confirm any of Dempsey's bouts under that alias.) The book contains quotes from folks, who claimed to know Dempsey in those days, as well as a dozen or so photographs.
