The games, the politics, and the culture that Frei deals with here unfolded thirty years ago, but they're brought to life again in this book with a clarity and a luster that make the story of Denver and the Broncos seem as fresh as the upcoming football season.

No one knows more about Denver and its sports than Terry Frei does, and here in '77 he describes nothing less than the transformation of a city with a special focus on Denver's most magical team. To know why and how the Mile High City exists as it does today, this is essential reading.

Terry Frei's book captures it perfectly, the coming of age that occurred for both a city and its football team when the Denver Broncos made it to their first Super Bowl. Few times in sports can match the passion and sheer joy of the original Broncomania.
