Booklist Review: "Young football fans will enjoy this overview of the Dallas Cowboys. After a chapter featuring Roger Staubach's comments on his famous 1975 Hail Mary pass, Wilner tells how the Cowboys got the nickname, America's Team, and why it still fits. He presents the Cowboys' history, from their home stadiums, classic games, and five longstanding rivalries to their eras of dominance and periods of disappointment. Throughout the book, he introduces coaches and owners as well as profiling many of the team's greatest players, discussing why they stood out and what they achieved. Quotes from significant players and coaches add their voices and points of view to the narrative. Black-and-white photos, usually action shots, illustrate this paperback from the new Season Ticket: Teams series, which also includes a book on the New York Yankees (Pinstripes and Pennants, 2019). Wilner's experience as a sportswriter shows in his straightforward approach to the topic, his long-range perspective on the team, and his knack for summing up the drama of a particular game in just a few sentences. A multifaceted introduction to the Cowboys.--Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2019 Booklist"
