Kane County Cougars by David Malamut: a review

Disclaimer: David Malamut’s a friend, and sometimes research partner.

This book could have used a copy editor–David’s a little sloppy about spelling sometimes–but it’s a well-executed book of the minor league team history genre. As with all Arcadia Press books, it’s a picture book with explanatory text, but in this case the text actually explains the photographs. That’s always a good thing.

The captions and introductions are factually accurate, although anyone who’s not a baseball fan will likely find them pretty boring. And the book’s well organized, and well laid out.

Nicely done.
