First, it is an eyewitness memoir that captures in atmospheric detail the impact of Jackies very presence on Ebbets Field from the adoring eyes of a nine year old fan, who saw him play often. Second, it explains how Jackies special personality and play affected the borough of Brooklyn and changed it forever.

Third, on a more personal level, Breaking Ground tells the story of how Jackie became an important figure inside the immigrant Lelchuk household, where a left-wing father, who had felt much hostility and estrangement from both America and his son, suddenly started to learn and understand the country of his son and of his own exile. Breaking Ground transports readers from the national baseball stage to the emergence of an iconic American city, from the throes and struggles of new immigrant family to a young boys deepest pleasures.
