Neugenboren's fifth book--Sam's Legacy covers both the life of Sam, a down-on-his-luck gambler who is also dealing with the legacy of memories of his Jewish father and grandfather, and the story of Madison Tidewater, the Negro Baseball League's 'Black Babe,' current janitor, and how their paths cross. The differences in how the two men resolve their loss of faith brings the novel together.
