Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Return once again to the timeless account of the Permian Panthers of Odessa--the winningest high-school football team in Texas history. Odessa is not known to be a town big on dreams, but the Panthers help keep the hopes and dreams of this small, dusty town going. Socially and racially divided, its fragile economy follows the treacherous boom-bust path of the oil business. In bad times, the unemployment rate barrels out of control; in good times, its murder rate skyrockets. But every Friday night from September to December, when the Permian High School Panthers play football, this West Texas town becomes a place where dreams can come true. With frankness and compassion, H. G. Bissinger chronicles 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.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5★ by 1reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by This was a very well written book Author did an amazing job of researching the material and writing the book, but the story behind 'Friday Night Lights' is not a pretty one. Young athletes are praised and fawned over their senior year in high school but left behind in the dust when the football season is over. 06/04/2013
