Archie Moore - The Ole Mongoose
(Marilyn G. Douroux, Stanley Weston)

The life of Archie Moore, world champion boxer, who, after retirement, dedicated his time on behalf of young people.

The book tells the story of the young Archie Moore from the time he was born dirt poor in Mississippi, and details Moore's travels throughout his boxing career and life through such locales as Australia and South America in his quest to get a title shot that was denied him for so many years by the boxing establishment.

The book is nice because the author seemingly had full access to Archie Moore and there are several pages of pictures and press clippings that one won't see anywhere else but this book. Also, Douroux goes into Moore's life after boxing quite deeply and fully explains Moore's hugely successful attempt to save young people from crime with his own ABC program.
