One Goal by Amy Bass

"In this noisy era of glib hot-takes and childish finger-pointing, it's too easy to forget that the national character -- hardworking, immigrant-fueled, optimistic -- was built from the bottom up. Let Amy Bass remind you. Let her take you to our frosty upper righthand corner, to Lewiston, Maine, where quiet heroes like Mike McGraw, Abdi H. and the magical Blue Devils show again just how it's done. This is not just a great story, deftly reported and unflinchingly told. It's not just a story of one obscure high school season. It's the American story, just when you feared that it might be fading fast, renewed." 


-- S.L. Price, Sports Illustrated senior writer & 

author of Playing Through The Whistle: Steel, Football and an American Town
