The true story of the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team and the Miracle on Ice, which Sports Illustrated called the greatest moment in sports history—with a new afterword by Ken Morrow for the fortieth anniversary of the Miracle on Ice “An unvarnished and captivating read.”—Parade Once upon a time, they taught us to believe. They were the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team, a blue-collar bunch led by an unconventional coach. Their “Miracle on Ice” has become a national fairy tale, but the real Cinderella story is even more remarkable. Wayne Coffey casts a fresh eye on this seminal sports event, giving readers an ice-level view of the amateurs who took on a Russian hockey juggernaut at the height of the Cold War. He details the unusual chemistry of the Americans—formulated by their fiercely determined coach, Herb Brooks—and seamlessly weaves portraits of the boys with the fluid action of the game itself. Coffey also traces the paths of the players and coaches since their stunning victory, examining how the Olympic events affected their lives. Told with warmth and an uncanny eye for detail, The Boys of Winter is an intimate, perceptive portrayal of one Friday night in Lake Placid and the enduring power of the extraordinary.

The book is a telescopic view of the central events of the Universe. It uses the mathematical concept of possibilities to amplify the teachings of the first part of the book. It uses an intimate observation of the central person of the Universe as He plunges into the Great Beyond in order to make salvation possible for all those who will believe upon Him in the second part of the book. The magnitude of the events around Calvary use darkness and tremors to focus an infinite beam of light upon the scared hill. The last units of the book demonstrate the infinite power of God as He forms the world as a stage for that Divine surge of marvelous love for the redemption of all races of people upon the earth. This proves that God really does have the whole world in His grip.

“An immensely valuable and substantial addition to 10th Mountain literature and to the history of skiing in the United States.” —International Ski History Association The Boys of Winter tells the true story of three young American ski champions and their brutal, heroic, and fateful transformation from athletes to infantrymen with the 10th Mountain Division. Charles J. Sanders’s fast-paced narrative draws on dozens of interviews and extensive research to trace these boys’ lives from childhood to championships and from training at Mount Rainier and in the Colorado Rockies to battles against the Nazis. “The Boys of Winter perfectly captures the spirit of the men who made the division what it was, as well as the spirit of those troopers who survived to help shape the postwar world.” —John Imbrie, 10th Mountain Division historian and coeditor of Good Times and Bad Times “Focusing on the lives, and the deaths, of three young men from vastly different backgrounds, Sanders traces the history of the U.S. Army’s Tenth Mountain Division from its inception, training in Washington and Colorado, first blooding in the Aleutians, and finally, to deployment to Italy in 1945 . . . The Boys of Winter is a sensitive tribute.” —Western Historical Quarterly “Sanders distills the complicated and years-long saga of the creation of America’s ski troops into an intensely personal story . . . [And] doesn’t shy away from a question that haunts the survivors of the division, and the families of those who never returned.” —The Durango Herald

Dropping the Torch: Jimmy Carter, the Olympic Boycott, and the Cold War offers a diplomatic history of the 1980 Olympic boycott. Broad in its focus, it looks at events in Washington, D.C., as well as the opposition to the boycott and how this attempted embargo affected the athletic contests in Moscow. Jimmy Carter based his foreign policy on assumptions that had fundamental flaws and reflected a superficial familiarity with the Olympic movement. These basic mistakes led to a campaign that failed to meet its basic mission objectives but did manage to insult the Soviets just enough to destroy détente and restart the Cold War. The book also includes a military history of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, which provoked the boycott, and an examination of the boycott's impact four years later at the Los Angeles Olympics, where the Soviet Union retaliated with its own boycott.

When the New York Times sportswriter Arthur Daley called the 1944 St. Louis Browns "the most astonishing ball club ever to reach the World Series," he wasn't handing out bouquets. An ill-assorted collection of castoffs, 4-Fs, no-accounts, farm boys, and brawlers with not much more than a few minor league games under their belts, the team was playing professional ball for only one reason: the best players had been drafted or had enlisted. Adding to the drama, these misfits were facing the fabled St. Louis Cardinals and their MVP, Stan Musial, one of the greatest hitters in baseball history. The story of this unlikely meeting between crosstown rivals--dubbed the "Streetcar Series" because so many fans took the trolley to Sportsman's Park--is told here for the first time.Mining a treasure trove of coverage, including on-the-spot commentary by the Hall of Fame sportswriter Bob Broeg, the authors bring this contest between baseball's David and Goliath vividly to life, giving readers a sense of what this suspenseful six-day series must have meant both to those on the homefront and U.S. servicemen around the world. A marvel of American sportsmanship, patriotism, and boyish innocence, the Streetcar Series will forever be remembered as the best and the "worst" of an era long past.John Heidenry is a native of St. Louis and the founding editor of St. Louis Magazine. He is the author of Theirs Was the Kingdom and What Wild Ecstasy . Brett Topel is a freelance sports journalist and an adjunct professor of journalism at Adelphi University. He is also the art director of The Week magazine.

•The exploits of mountaineering’s most colorful band of adventurers The Boys of Everest by Clint Willis tells the gripping story of “Bonington’s Boys,” a band of climbers who reinvented mountaineering during the three decades after Everest’s first ascent. It is a story of tremendous courage, astonishing achievement, and heartbreaking loss. Chris Bonington’s inner circle included a dozen of mountaineering’s most legendary figures—Don Whillans, John Harlin, Dougal Haston, Doug Scott, Peter Boardman, Joe Tasker, and others—who together gave birth to a new brand of climbing. They took increasingly challenging risks on now-legendary expeditions to the world’s most fearsome peaks—and they paid an enormous price. Most of them died in the mountains, leaving behind the hardest question of all: was it worth it? “Willis's classy style turns reportage into literature . . . Bonington's Boys come across as raw, anguished souls . . . As Willis describes in his artful prose, their suffering is not just a means to an end (the summit), it is an end.” –The New York Times “A gripping adventure saga . . .”–Publishers Weekly “A death-haunted saga of the scalers of heaven . . .” –Kirkus Reviews “Mr. Willis tells a story that is gripping and poignant and even appalling . . .” –The Wall Street Journal

This short story was inspired by actual interviews with teenage boys in high school. These events happened in their lives, and they wanted to tell their stories as long as I didnt mention their names or locations. Some of the boys wanted to clear their minds and came back many times to talk. Whether the stories are true or not, I dont know. The stories do provide good reading. I created three fictional main characters to tell the story, and they do not represent anyone in particular. The community of Pepper Beach doesnt exist, but the history of Florida is real and very exciting.
