A Big Game, a Turbulent Time Nixon was president. The Vietnam War was raging and the civil rights movement was in full swing. Everything in America seemed to be changing and the kids were right in the middle of it. Of course, teenagers still did what they ve always done. They attended high school, went out on dates, worked summer jobs, and drank beer. Many also played sports. In Chattanooga, Tennessee, it had been 30 years since City High had defeated Central High in football. First and Thirty follows the lives of the City football players and their friends as they undergo the trials and tribulations of being in high school during these tumultuous years, while attempting to beat their arch-rivals on the gridiron. On a cold night in November 1970, the maroon-clad seniors of City s Dynamo football team took the field one last time, carrying the indelible lessons that Head Coach Bobby Davis had instilled in them. Would this be the game that would break the spell Central had held over them?

About the Author:

First and Thirty was Buck's first published book. He felt compelled to write the story about this unique experience in his life. He got the idea to from the last high school reunion he attended where fellow alumina were reminiscing about how their time in high differed from the average high school experience. He was next encouraged to write a book by a freelance consultant who after hearing Buck speak at a sales meeting told him he should write a book and share his sales experience. He was inspired to give writing a try. So in the spring of 2014 the writing of First and Thirty began. Maybe the sales book is next. Carlton Buck Buchanan was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He graduated from Chattanooga High School. In 1976 he received a BS Degree in Business Administration from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. After graduation, he moved to Atlanta to take a management job with Greyhound Lines. He was promoted three times in four years. He changed industries, leaving the transportation business to go into the world of construction products with a job at Sto Corp. He stayed there for 15 years, working his way up from a sales rep to a vice president. In 1996, took a management job at Parex USA, where he held several management positions. In 2005 he became a vice president, managing a $100 million business unit. In 2006, he moved to Parex s North American headquarters office in California and now holds the position of Senior Vice President. Over the years, he has been an active industry spokesman and has served on several industry boards of directors.

Review:

Anyone who has an interest in CHS, football, high school life, or Chattanooga and its history should read it." David Jones (former classmate) Chattanooga, TN "You are a gifted writer skillfully weaving our football season with the history happening in the world at that time. Both story lines were so fun to re-live... And many of the football facts were just plain lost or unknown to me. Your book will be one I will always keep and share with my family. Thank you for this gift."- Lee Abelson (former teammate) Chattanooga, TN "I thoroughly enjoyed your book. I found myself recalling high school memories." -Doug O'Neil, Yorba Linda, CA Anyone who has an interest in CHS, football, high school life, or Chattanooga and its history should read it." David Jones (former classmate) Chattanooga, TN I enjoyed every minute of this book. Many of the folks mentioned are friends of mine to this day, some 40 plus years later. Buck's( Buck Buchanan) shares his inner thoughts and insights during the late 60's and 70's from drive-in movie adventures to summer football practices to segregation in Chattanooga.

Book Description Broadway Ventures LLC, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. A Big Game, a Turbulent Time The vista from Rock City, a popular tourist attraction at the top of Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, Tennessee, is stunning. The Tennessee River winds through the mountainous terrain below and it s said you can see seven states from its viewing points. But the mountain looks out on more than space; it also watches time roll along, and as the clock struck midnight on January 1, 1970, both a new year and a new decade were ushered in. The sixties were over. What would the next 10 years bring? The high-school kids in Hamilton County, Tennessee, would experience the changes, both personal and social, first-hand as they transitioned from teenagers to adults. Nixon was president. The Vietnam War was raging and the civil rights movement was in full swing. Everything in America seemed to be changing and the kids were right in the middle of it. High School only lasts a few years. Some people love it, some hate it, and some don t even think about it. But in 1970, the City High Dynamo football team overcame adversity to defeat its oldest rival making it an unforgettable season. Surrounded by racial unrest in the city, the Dynamos worked together to give the school a spirited boost. First and Thirty follows the team through the year as they are led by their inspirational coach, Bobby Davis. As the football schedule progresses, teammates play their hardest week after week. The season climaxes with the final game against, the Central High Purple Pounders. First and Thirty is a football book, but also a book about high school life. Romances bloom, friendships grow, and foolishness is plentiful. (Well, some things never change.). Seller Inventory # APC9780692492758
