Historic Photos of University of Alabama Football Giveaway!!!
I seriously love Turner Publishing. And I REALLY love it when they send me books to share with you!!
This book is a great one.
Well, it's a great one if you're in half the population of the state, anyway.
"Historic Photos of University of Alabama Football" was just released LAST WEEK, and they sent me a copy to give away to you!
This book weaves an amazing story. The pictures start in 1892, each with it's own short story. And as you flip through the book, you literally feel as if you are stepping through time. The stories are fascinating and the pictures are spellbinding. And, of course, Bear Bryant can be seen from the 1930's and 40's when he was a player, through to the 80's in his last coaching days.
Here is a video of some of the pages in the book:
Also, there will be an amazing launch party at the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame on July 14th at 5:30 pm that is free and open to the public! I will be attending and covering the event on Alabama Bloggers, and I definitely encourage you to come as well - it is sure to be an awesome event!
The author and Alabama Alum, Joseph "Woody" Woodruff will speak and sign copies of the book, and former Alabama Football Stars Tommy Brooker, Jerry Duncan, and Murray Legg will attend as well. The event is sponsored by Alabama Booksmith.
