About this Book

The Natural is a literary classic novel involving the sport of baseball. The protagonist, Roy Hobbs, made the mistake of declaring his dream out loud to the wrong person. That dream was to be the best there ever was, to one day have the people say "There goes the greatest to ever play the game."

The dream was stopped cold, but only temporarily, as years later he would get a second chance at his dream, elevating him and his story into the realms of both sports and American myth.
Originally released as a novel back in 1961, also an Oscar nominated major motion picture.
