The Legend of Bagger Vance | [Steven Pressfield]

The Legend of Bagger Vance

In Steven Pressfield's richly imagined, vividly detailed story, golf legends Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen are joined by a local unsung opponent, the troubled war hero Rannulph Junah. Played above raging Atlantic surf and under gathering storm clouds, their match is thrilling competition. But 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 the lives he touches that day and in years to come.

Publisher's Summary

The time: 1931. The place: the golf links at Krewe Island off Savannah's windswept Atlantic shore. The event: a once-in-a-lifetime 36-hole match... in which the stakes are higher than anyone imagined.

In Steven Pressfield's richly imagined, vividly detailed story, golf legends Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen are joined by a local unsung opponent, the troubled war hero Rannulph Junah. Played above raging Atlantic surf and under gathering storm clouds, their match is thrilling competition. But 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 the lives he touches that day and in years to come.

A sports fable worthy of comparison to The Natural, The Legend of Bagger Vance reveals that, in life as well as golf, the real battle is not with outside opponents but with oneself.

    "enjoyable start to finish"

    I am not a reader so my sister bought me this eBook. I will definitely be looking for other books by this author or read by this narrator.

    "Wow, this is exceptional!!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Legend of Bagger Vance the most enjoyable?

    The narrator is unbelievable. I couldn't believe the variety of characters one man could bring to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Legend of Bagger Vance?

    The deep insights into the transmundane.


    Which character – as performed by Barrett Whitener – was your favorite?

    Hardy


    If you could rename The Legend of Bagger Vance, what would you call it?

    Without hope and Without fear


    Any additional comments?

    It is book about golf and I was putting this novel off because it seemed like something I wouldn't care about. I have listened to all of Steve's audiobooks, absolutely love them, and this one might be my favorite! It is a book that can be mined for knowledge and truths. It is so well written and narrated. It is so much different and better than what I expected. I can't believe how it blew my expectations away!

    "Makes you want to believe in something more"

    One of my all time favorites! This book is a work of art, I wish there was a series or at least a second book.

    "Wonderful...but I don't really trust "the cloud"."
    What made the experience of listening to The Legend of Bagger Vance the most enjoyable?

    I have enjoyed this audio book since the days of it being on 4 cassette tapes!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Legend of Bagger Vance?

    The moment when Bagger hits three balls at the same target and they all end up in the hole but take different paths.


    What about Barrett Whitener’s performance did you like?

    His very natural southern accent.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Legend of Bagger Vance and why?

    The narrator, Dr. Grieves. It is his voice telling the tale and it is a fairly lengthy and very intriguing story as told in the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to see a motion picture tell this story and stay truer to it.
