Bought it for my husband - he is a big Drew Pearson fan. He loved it.
This was a gift for my husband. He enjoyed reading a book about one of his favorite Dallas Cowboys players.
THis book read surprisingly quickly. There were really no dull moments, except the chapters that dealt with specific football games. Thankfully, that was few. A lot of questions were left unanswered, but I especially enjoyed his take and opinion of other Cowboys.
A very easy and quick read. This book made me see a whole different side of the NFL, football life as an athlete and Drew Pearson, the football player and the man! What a mighty good man he is. I can't wait to find out more details in Thomas Henderson's and Harvey Martin's books. WHEN is Hail Mary Part II coming out?
