Friday Night Lights by H.G. Bizzinger

Book cover of Friday Night Lights

This riveting classic of sports reporting was first published in 1989 and it documents the 1988 football season of a Texas high school team. Its legendary status has spawned television shows, documentaries, and film. Odessa is a dying oil patch town in West Texas, yet it is a town with a dream. For on Friday nights, the football stadium is filled with 20,000 fans cheering the Permian Panthers. Bissinger, who spent four months following the team--on the field and off--and talking with people from all segments of the community, offers a picture of American sports and American culture.
