This review was submitted by Nia Shetty, a fifth grader from Texas.
Undefeated is about Jim Thorpe and the Carlisle Indian School Football Team. It is a very interesting non-fiction book. It will tell you about origins about football and history about Native Americans.
It is a biography and is split into two parts. In the beginning of the book it talks about Pop Warner. Pop Warner was an Ivy League grad, football mastermind, and an indomitable coach for the Carlisle Indians. The readers also learn about Carlisle Indian Industrial Schools history and the schools football team in its early years. Included in the first section is Jim Thorpe’s childhood and early years at Carlisle.
The second half talks about Jim Thorpe’s legendary years as a Carlisle football player. It also includes facts about Jim Thorpe going to the Olympics in 1912. The second portion states facts about Jim’s relationships and family.
I think you will like this book as it is nonfiction which reads like a story with lots of great information. I hope you enjoy this wonderful book as much as I did.
