Children's LiteratureThey shared the title of heartbreak team of the National Football League with the Denver Broncos and the Los Angeles/St. Louis Rams. With both the Broncos and Rams winning Super Bowl titles, the Vikings, at the time of this writing, are notorious for having gone to the Bowl Championship four times without winning. Yet the Vikings have created a dynasty that has electrified professional football for years. In fact, their outdoor games against the Green Bay Packers were called the ice bowl due to the immensely cold conditions. John F. Grabowski provides readers with an interesting and in-depth look at this amazing team. Instead of writing a general overview, Grabowski focuses on specific moments and players who impacted and continue to impact the Vikings. This volume of the "Great Sports Teams" series is an excellent resource for any fan of the team or the game of football. The book has a section of Viking achievements, other sources for more information, bibliography, index and notes page. With all the sources listed, this is a great starting point for research. 2003, Lucent Books, Ages 12 to 18.
