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)
