Overview

In Where Have All Our Cowboys Gone?, Dallas sports broadcasting veteran Brian Jensen tracks down over 100 of the franchise's most popular players, bringing readers up to speed on their post-gridiron experiences.

Some marched seamlessly from the football field into the business world. Many took unusual or colorful paths. Others were never able to adjust and descended into poverty or crime. Some even met untimely deaths. Jensen, a former sports reporter and lifelong Cowboy fan, provides intimate looks at Cowboy legends like Bob Lilly, Tony Dorsett, and Danny White; success stories like those of Walt Garrison, Randy White, and Cliff Harris; as well as the struggles of players like Bob Hayes, Golden Richards, and Rafael Septien.

Compelling, informative, and unflinching in its honesty, Where Have All Our Cowboys Gone? is the first book to explore the post-football lives of the players who helped forge America's Team.

Editorial Reviews

Abilene Reporter-News (Texas) - Larry Lawrence
...gives the reader an intimate look at the legends such as Bob Tilly, Tony Dorsett, Walt Garrison, Ed "Too Takk" Jones and Danny White among others.
Dallas Morning News - Sam Blair
Jensen, a good writer and interviewer, was wise to give them full voice in their stories. It makes for a most unusual chorus.

    Wonderful Book

    This book was an awesome read. Many interesting short stories about lots of MY childhood heroes. The book took me back in time and also let me catch up on what has happened to so many of the players I grew up with. The successes and failures, the happy stories and the sad. Stories from Hollywood Henderson, Mike Clark, Harvey Martin, Ralph Neely, Roger Staubach, and many more. It is a MUST read for any fan of the Dallas Cowboys!!

    Absolutely captivating!!!

    I was hooked from the introduction! This book is filled with heart warming interviews of several former Dallas Cowboys and what they have done with their lives after football. It is so well written that once you have read about one Cowboy it is hard not to find out what all the others interviewed by the author are doing. I hope we see a lot more from this author in the future.

    More than just football stuff!!

    I was given a copy of this book by a friend and it was a great read. The chapters flew by and I found myself going back and reading some over again. One of the best things about this book is that its not just football. In many of the stories, human interest outweighed sports. Thank goodness!! I especially liked the Danny Villanueva, Golden Richards and Jeff Rohrer stories. When is volume 2 coming out?
