Football in Minnesota isn’t about the game, it isn’t about the wins or losses, it’s about tradition. In this newly-updated edition of “A Tradition of Purple,” Jim Bruton brings the indomitable legacy of the Minnesota Vikings to life. From the moment they first burst onto the field in 1961 and destroyed the Chicago Bears in an unprecedented upset, the Vikings have carved out a place of their own in the NFL and in the hearts and minds across the country. This illustrated novel captures the love affair between the Vikings and Minnesotans—one forged from the unique combination of frigid cold games, heartfelt community service projects and hatred of the Green Bay Packers. Whether it’s stories about Norm Van Brocklin and Bud Grant or tales of a “Football for Life” clinic with the children of St. Joseph’s Home, A Tradition of Purple has something for every Vikings fan—the epic wins, the gut-wrenching losses, the players who kept going despite the wind an the cold because there were still fans bundled in those seats willing to stay to support their team. Recapture all the excitement of Vikings football by adding this illustrated masterpiece to your collection!
