Sammy Davis Jr.: A Personal Journey With My Father
by Tracey Davis
Submitted by Sherri B.
I thoroughly enjoyed this engaging, enlightening and humbling story of the life of Sammy Davis. Jr. Throughout his life, Sammy overcame so much adversity, even during his time spent in military service. He fought his way back to health after a devastating car accident, a true survivor’s tale. Sammy’s story – including his legacy as the consummate jet setter – is fascinating! (Adult Non-Fiction)
