The Legend of Bagger Vance: A Novel of Golf and the Game of Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the Depression year of 1931, on the golf links at Krewe Island off Savannah's windswept shore, two legends of the game, Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen, meet for a mesmerizing thirty-six-hole showdown. Another golfer will also compete — a troubled local war hero, once a champion, who comes with his mentor and caddie, the mysterious Bagger Vance. Sage and charismatic, it is Vance who will ultimately guide the match — for he holds the secret of the Authentic Swing. And he alone can show his protégé the way back to glory.

Review:

"Golf and mysticism...a dazzler and a thought-provoker." Los Angeles Times

Review:

"Deeply entertaining, a terrific read...a deft fairy tale with a light, engaging touch." St. Petersburg Times

Synopsis:

In 1931 Savannah, a mesmerizing 36-hole match is taking place, in which two legends face off against a troubled former war hero. The key to the outcome lies with Bagger Vance, a caddie who carries the secret of the Authentic Swing. His mysterious powers guide the play and leave a lasting imprint on everyone around him--and on someone 60 years in the future.
