Publisher Comments:

In the tradition of such films as Hoosiers, Breaking Away, and Rocky, here is an inspiring story about the rundown town of Willow Creek, Montana, and the handful of people who live there with a sense of fateful resignation. One of them, high school English teacher Sam Pickett, is the coach of the school's basketball team, which has an abysmal record of zero wins and ninety-three losses. But the sudden arrival of two potential hoops stars gives both the town and the team something to believe in. This tale of misfits brought together through the determination of a man struggling to bury his past is fueled by page-turning on-the-court action, characters you won't want to let go of, and a story you won't soon forget. And the story behind the novel is almost as inspiring as the tale of the small town and its dogged team. Over time, this self-published book earned a devoted following, thanks to the perseverance of its author. Sure to capture the hearts of a vast number of new readers, Blind Your Ponies is a classic tale of overcoming adversity told with humor and compassion.
