Summary

Summary

Lee Jacobs (Rose) was an interesting character and a long-time leader in the sport of horseshoe pitching. In The Lee Rose Story, National Horseshoe Pitchers Association (NHPA) historian Bob Dunn weaves Jacobs' hand-written journal entries into a moving story that takes a forty-year journey through a remarkable and formative era in the sport of horseshoe pitching.
