Bart Starr by John Devaney TK1098

Bart Starr by John Devaney, 4th Scholastic paperback printing, TK1098, 1968, 143 pages. Cover illustrated by Asaro.

DESCRIPTION: “‘Bart the cool…’ is what they call him: his coach, his teammates, and his opponents. They know him as the calm, quick-thinking quarterback of the Green Bay Packers- a quiet, courageous man, friendly, easy-going and relaxed: a superstar.
But to know Bart Starr you must also know what it is like to walk the streets in despair, ignored by your coach; to brood over three interceptions that cost your team a victory- and to know the joy of becoming a champion after years of bitterness and frustration.
All these things have happened to Bart Starr. Here you will learn how they happened, and how they forged a champion.” (from the back cover)


About vintagescholastics

I love these old Scholastics! I am a bookseller, writer, and dog-lover; live at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains of New York with my computer-programmer husband. We love motor-cycle riding, renovating our old camp on Lake Desolation, gardening, and researching our genealogy. The purpose of this blog is to highlight those beloved old books from the Scholastic Book fairs from 1950 - 1979. This will serve as a catalogue of the books, with their identifying numbers, a plot summary, and a photo of the cover; with a searchable index. I want to give all of the writers and illustrator's bios so they get credit (many were writers in the summer while on vacation from their regular schoolteaching jobs.; some are lesser known efforts by very famous people; and some are reprinted classics.) Hopefully, their fans will be able to identify favorite titles with snipets of remembered information. We will always be adding new ones, and welcome your submissions
