Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth D. Schafer
This book in the "Team Spirit" series notes highlights of the New Orleans Saints, playing since 1967, particularly how that team recovered after setbacks from Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and contributed to the restoration of their Gulf Coast community. A brief section describes the Saints' home fields, first at Tulane University's stadium in New Orleans then the Louisiana Superdome, and provides details about that structure, its uses, and how it sheltered evacuees during the hurricane. The significance of the Saints' uniform colors and logo is explained. Five early Saints, including Danny Abramowicz and Archie Manning, are profiled. Later players, such as Reggie Bush and Drew Brees, are featured. The Saints' coaches and their achievements are discussed. A chapter focuses on the September 25, 2006, game against the Atlanta Falcons in which the Saints first played at home after hosting games at other venues post-Katrina. Readers discover the importance of a sixty-three-yard kick in the November 8, 1970, Saints game against the Detroit Lions. A timeline and lists emphasize national player, coach, and team accomplishments. Maps, a glossary, and contact information supplement the text. Color and black-and-white photographs and images of football cards and pennants complement historical information. Quotations give voice to eight people associated with the Saints but lack references to locate sources. No resources specifically about the Saints are recommended in the short bibliography.
