Summary

Bart Starr was the quarterback for the Green Bay Packers from 1956 to 1971, the most meaningful and successful era of one of football's most storied franchises. He was named MVP of the first two Super Bowls and went to the Pro Bowl four times, but his awards and impressive statistics are not what fans remember most about Bart Starr-his courage, stamina, and leadership were what set him apart. This book reveals all the details of Starr's improbable rise to stardom. It explores his relationship with legendary coach Vince Lombardi and his guidance of the Packers from a downtrodden franchise to five-time World Champions and two-time Super Bowl winners.
