“The 25th anniversary edition of the #1 New York Times bestseller and Sports Illustrated‘s best football book of all time, with a new afterword by the author
Return once again to the timeless account of the Permian Panthers of Odessa—the winningest high-school football team in Texas history.
Socially and racially divided, Odessa isn’t known to be a place big on dreams, but every Friday night from September to December, when the Panthers play football, dreams can come true.
With frankness and compassion, H. G. Bissinger unforgettably captures a season in the life of Odessa and shows how single-minded devotion to the team shapes the community and inspires—and sometimes shatters—the teenagers who wear the Panthers’ uniforms.” (via Amazon)
