“An eloquent, honest tribute to a sports genius.” —Publishers Weekly, Best 100 Books of 2013
As the coach during professional football’s most storied era, Tom Landry transformed the gridiron from a no-holds-barred battlefield to the highly-technical chess match it is today. With his trademark fedora and stoic facade, he was a man of faith and few words, for twenty-nine years guiding “America’s Team” from laughingstock to well-oiled machine, with an unprecedented twenty consecutive winning seasons and two Super Bowl titles. Now, more than a decade after Landry’s death, acclaimed biographer Mark Ribowsky takes a fresh look at this misunderstood legend, telling us as much about our country’s obsession with football as about Landry himself, the likes of whom we’ll never see again.

Review of: The Last Cowboy (By Rene Gayo)
Honest through and through. As close to perfect as you can get. A book for every Dallas Cowboy fan, Football fan, and every Texan. My respect for Mr. Ribowsky.
I have been a Cowboys fan from New England all my life, following them since 1970. I don't mind a few interjections of ones views here & there, but Ribokowsky is clearly hateful toward those on the right & if nit afraid to let you know that as he chides all things conservative & republican. I was truly surprised & disappointed after buying the book. I will certainly steer clear of his writings......
