The Vikings haven’t won a championship since 1969, but that doesn’t mean they haven't been one of the most compelling franchises in the NFL. From the heyday of the "Purple People Eaters" to their heartbreaking loss in the 2009 NFC title game, Bill Williamson and Eric Thompson provide a comprehensive history of the team through the eyes of the players and coaches who lived it.
Veteran broadcaster Pete Larkin's deep, rich baritone exudes grandeur, and he nimbly shifts tones between the comic ("Favre-a-geddon") and the tragic (the death of Korey Stringer).
Rife with firsthand accounts and colorful anecdotes, this audiobook provides an insider’s view into one of the most storied franchises in NFL history.
