Overview

Papa Bear: The Life and Legacy of George Halas by Jeff Davis

"Papa Bear is everything a sports book should be: Passionate, encyclopedic, utterly biased and filled with endearingly anachronistic phrases. . ."
New York Times Book Review

Granted unprecedented access to George Halas’s former players, friends and associates, author Jeff Davis tells the incredible story of how one man grabbed an outlaw game by the throat, shook it up, and made it into the most popular spectator sport on the planet.
