Críticas:

"'America's Team' has had its share of outsize characters, and this raucous his-tory places the franchise against the political and socioeconomic backdrop of its sprawling home-town." -- New York Times Book Review"

Reseña del editor:

From Dandy Don Meredith and Roger Staubach to the three Super Bowls won by the unbeatable trio of Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith in the mid-nineties, to TO, Tony Romo and the glitzy soap opera team of today, the Cowboys have been the NFL's star franchise for 50 years. Love them or hate them - the Dallas Cowboys are known as "America's Team."

But the Cowboys have never been just about football. With their oil baron roots, overbearing, ego-driven owner, players who can't stay out of the tabloids, a palatial new home that sets the standard for modern stadiums, fans as enthusiastic as cheerleaders and cheerleaders who are as famous as the team itself, the Cowboys have become a staple of Americana.

Joe Nick Patoski plumbs all these stories in a book that is a rich, sometimes scandalous and always vivid portrait of a time, a place and an irreplaceable team.
