Bowerman and the Men of Oregon: The Story of Oregon's Legendary Coach and Nike's Cofounder by Kenny Moore
Bowerman and the Men of Oregon: The Story of Oregon's Legendary Coach and Nike's Cofounder

girlGrower, January 2, 2012

Not only a probing biography of Bill Bowerman, legendary coach of UO track & field program, but rich with Oregon history (pioneer and contemporary), full of vignettes and names from the last 60 years which Oregoians and followers of sport will recognize, the story of Nike's unlikely beginning, the Prefontaine drama and the continuing power wars among various governing bodies that control amateur sports. Fascinating, penetrating, absorbing and Long. Lots of race detail.
