50 YEARS OF FOOTBALL
Few teams in American sports history have generated such powerful emotional reactions as the Dallas Cowboys. Like the New York Yankees or the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, the Cowboys are both revered and reviled in the extreme. For the fans who love them, the famed franchise has, over its first half century, delivered heroes like Bob Lilly, Chuck Howley, Roger Staubach, Bob Hayes, Mel Renfro, Tom Landry, Cliff Harris, Randy White, Troy Aikman. Record-breakers like Tony Dorsett, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin. Memorable characters like Don Meredith, Pete Gent, Tex Schramm, Harvey Martin, Too Tall Jones, Hollywood Henderson, Jimmy Johnson. They have been, over their first 50 years, the most fascinating team in football. In 1960, their first season, the Cowboys were winless. By the 1966 season they were playing in the NFL Championship Game. In January of 1972 they won their first Super Bowl title. In 1996 they won their fifth � in their eighth Super Bowl appearance, the most by any team. The Cowboys have won dramatically, won stylishly and won relentlessly. Their captivating odyssey is all here in nearly 200 pages of pictures, stories, iconography, numbers and arcane from those five decades � a unique celebration of a football team.
