Overview

Eagle Blue: A Team, a Tribe, and a High School Basketball Season in Arctic Alaska by Michael D'Orso

Eagle Blue follows the Fort Yukon Eagles, winners of six regional championships in a row, through the course of an entire 28-game season, from their first day of practice in late November to the Alaska State Championship Tournament in March. With insight, frankness, and compassion, Michael D'Orso climbs into the lives of these fourteen boys, their families, and their coach, shadowing them through an Arctic winter of fifty-below-zero temperatures and near-round-the-clock darkness as the Eagles criss-cross Alaska in pursuit of their-and their village's-dream.

I enjoyed the book Eagle Blue. I love to watch basketball. Being able to read about a team was really nice. I really liked the setting of the book, in Alaska.

Eagle Blue gives the reader a sense of what it is like to spend a winter in Fort Yukon. It goes beyond just the game itself and gives one a sense of the town and culture.

I thought this book was really good because it can appeal to many audiences not just basketball fans but anyone who wants to understand how sports can change a teens life in highschool. The only critiscim i would have about Eagle Blue is that the author did not bring the players to life beyond the game scene. I wasnt able to connect with them as the reader.

This book is a realistic look at life in the bush country of Alaska and the pride the high basketball team brings to the community. One learns how important it is to live and let live and be non judgmental in the way others choose to exist.
