Scott Ellsworth

Scott Ellsworth is an American writer and the author of four books. DEATH IN A PROMISED LAND was the first comprehensive history of the 1921 Tulsa race massacre. "This splendid book belongs in any library serving readers in American history," Library Journal. "A historian with the soul of a poet" is how Booklist described the author of THE SECRET GAME. Winner of the 2016 PEN/ESPN Book Award for Literary Sportswriting, it is a riveting account of a clandestine, integrated college basketball game that took place in North Carolina in 1944--and of a nation on the verge of historic change. THE WORLD BENEATH THEIR FEET resurrects the Great Himalayan Race of the 1930s, when mountain climbers from Great Britain, Nazi Germany, and the United States vied to become the first to summit the great peaks of the Himalayas. 'It works brilliantly," The Sunday Times. In THE GROUND BREAKING, Scott returns to the Tulsa massacre and its legacy. "Taut, tense, and meticulously composed," Gilbert King, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian. "Heartbreaking and inspiring," Beto O'Rourke.
