They are loved and they are hated. There is no team in the NFL – no football team in the nation – that stirs as much emotion, coast to coast, as the Dallas Cowboys. They are ‘America’s Team.’ Born in 1960, the Cowboys did not win a game in their first season, finishing 0-11-1. From those humble beginnings emerged a franchise for whom winning, and winning it all, was expected. Eight Super Bowl appearances, five Super Bowl victories. And, oh, the glory and the glamour that has surrounded this team. The names leap out of NFL history: Dandy Don Meredith, Bullet Bob Hayes, Ed ‘Too Tall’ Jones, Thomas ‘Hollywood’ Henderson. The lineage of head coaches is a Who’s Who list: Tom Landry, Jimmy Johnson, Barry Switzer, Bill Parcells. The Hall of Famers could fill their own wing: from Bob Lilly to Mel Renfro to Roger Staubach to Tony Dorsett to Troy Aikman to Michael Irvin, and on it goes. In The Dallas Cowboys the rich heritage of this famous football team is captured in an extraordinary collection of stories by the finest sports writers in the world, a spectacular selection of images from the best photo archive in all of sports, and a mind-boggling array of stats, arcana, anecdotes and memorabilia. It is the ultimate celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Dallas Cowboys.
