Friday Night Lights, 25th Anniversary Edition

A Town, a Team, and a Dream

The 25th anniversary edition of the #1 New York Times bestseller and Sports Illustrated‘s best football book of all time, with a new afterword by the author

Return once again to the timeless account of the Permian Panthers of Odessa—the winningest high-school football team in Texas history. Socially and racially divided, Odessa isn’t known to be a place big on dreams, but every Friday night from September to December, when the Panthers play football, dreams can come true.

With frankness and compassion, H. G. Bissinger unforgettably captures a season in the life of Odessa and shows how single-minded devotion to the team shapes the community and inspires—and sometimes shatters—the teenagers who wear the Panthers’ uniforms.

It's not but about 365 pages long...but sometimes, even in the fall and winter, you need a brisk read that's not too heavy."—Arkansas Democrat Gazette
